The Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA) announced today that Chip Rogers will step down as its president and CEO in order to become president and CEO of the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA).

Rogers will work with AAHOA’s leadership through early 2019 to transition the success of ongoing projects.

“We have begun a comprehensive search process to find our next CEO who will build on this tremendous foundation,” said AAHOA chairman Hitesh Patel.

“We thank Chip for his remarkable service to AAHOA and to our members," said Patel. "Our membership numbers, business relationships, industry reputation, and advocacy presence grew exponentially because of Chip’s efforts," said Patel. The association says its membership now has 18,500 members, who own nearly one in every two hotels in the United States.

“AAHOA is proud of our relationship with AHLA, and we look forward to working with Chip and his new team to continue to lead the lodging industry together,” said Patel.
