The Association recognizes the difficulties our members continue to face in the wake of COVID-19. From witnessing record-low occupancy levels and international travel restrictions to the labor shortages and supply chain disruptions, we understand the value of each dollar spent has never been greater. With that in mind, we are extending our 20 percent discount on membership dues into 2022 to help alleviate some of the financial pressure hoteliers are facing. 

It is now more important than ever to stay connected with fellow owners and the Association as we provide advice and counsel to IHG to meet the challenges our industry faces.
