The Long Island Hospitality Association unites industry executives, hospitality professionals, career-minded college students, and industry partners to share best practices, business-building solutions, and networking opportunities to help all hospitality-related companies and workers find success.
The LIHA is also dedicated to giving back to the community through fundraising initiatives and donations directed toward educational institutions to help provide scholarships for students to find financial footing and continue working and living on Long Island.
Additionally, we’re here to work with local, state, and federal politicians to create a healthier environment for hospitality businesses to thrive, while creating jobs and giving back to our Long Island communities.
Our Mission Statement
The Mission of the LIHA, formed for charitable purposes, is to provide a network for members to review common hospitality industry challenges and hospitality best practices, exchange ideas, and raise awareness about services that the members, industry leaders, and industry partners can utilize to address pertinent issues.
