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.

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.
