MEET tHE COUNCIL
The Alachua County Hospitality Council is a non-profit organization that was formed as a way for dedicated professionals in the Hospitality & Tourism industry to exchange ideas, promote events in our area and network to provide unique and memorable experiences to those who visit or reside in Alachua County.
As leaders in the Hospitality industry, we provide scholarships to area students who are pursuing careers in our field, and support them with mentoring programs and internships. We also raise funds for local and national charities and host events to support our local community.
CHECK OUT A MEETING
All Members are allowed to bring one colleague to our monthly meetings, or invite hospitality or tourism friends you think would benefit. We'd love to share our love of hospitality with you!
The Council aims to foster a co-operative effort within the local hospitality community; by creating a space for promoting opportunities and the exchange of ideas.
A primary mission of the Council is to facilitate and develop greater hospitality-related revenue growth in Alachua County, Florida through events, activities and tourism.
Your participation creates a forum for two-way communication between industry members and the Alachua County Visitors and Convention Bureau, Visit Gainesville.
We assist members with improving their professional performance through educational development within the local hospitality industry and student scholarships.
