AH&LA’s First Webinar Series to Focus on Energy Management


WASHINGTON, D.C.—The American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) is launching a Webinar program to further compliment the association’s wide array of existing educational offerings that help members operate more efficiently and profitably. The first three trainings—presented in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Energy Star program—will run in April, May and June, and focus on the keys to a successful energy management program that improve property efficiency and financial performance.

Topics include:

How Does Your Hotel Measure Up—April 4, 1 p.m. (EST) Explore the financial and environmental reasons why hotel operators should measure, trace and improve their energy performance.

Capture the Savings: Improve the Energy Performance of Your Hotel—May 16, 1 p.m. (EST) Learn how to reduce a hotel’s energy consumption and get the most bang for your energy management buck.

Everyone on Board: Communicate the Benefits of Energy Management—June 27, 1 p.m. (EST) Find out how to communicate effectively with key decision makers, hotel staff and guests about energy performance.

Additionally, each 90-minute Webinar will provide successful, real world approaches to energy awareness. American Express is the presenting sponsor of the AH&LA Webinar series. The Home Depot Supply is the Energy Innovation series sponsor.

“The three-part series provides hoteliers with easy-to-implement ideas and the latest information on how to make their properties more energy efficient, cater to guests who are increasingly environmentally conscious, and increase their bottom line,” says AH&LA President/CEO Joseph A. McInerney. “AH&LA’s Environmental & Engineering Committee worked with our partners at the EPA to ensure the content is relevant to a broad spectrum of attendees.”

The cost for each Webinar in the AH&LA Energy Innovation series is $99 for members and $199 for nonmembers. All three Webinars may be purchased in advance as a package for $199 for members and $399 for nonmembers. To register, visit www.ahla.com/seminars_energy.asp.
