Membership Benefits

Legislative Representation

One of the most important services provided by the Association is to be a voice of its members. AHA monitors legislative activity and regulatory measures at the local and state level that affect the hospitality business.


Studies show that more than 77% of hotel employees in Ethiopia are not professionals which could fit the standard of hotels in the country. In order to fill this gap, the association has been giving different kinds of trainings at AHA training center which designed to build the capacity of member hotel employees and to enhance their performance.
