The Triangle Area Hotel-Motel Association (TAHMA) was established in 1988 to sustain an outgrowth of the Raleigh Hotel-Motel Association and the Durham-Chapel Hill Hotel Association. TAHMA provides hoteliers and other industry members a regular forum at which to meet and discuss industry issues that affect the individual counties as well as the Triangle Area as a region.
TAHMA is recognized by government officials and other community leaders as a leading authority on issues facing the hotel/motel industry.
TAHMA holds nine meetings each year combining a relaxed luncheon and an opportunity to hear presentations on pertinent industry topics. Speakers are experts from businesses and agencies intertwined with the lodging industry. Two social events are held each year. The Spring Golf Tournament and the Fall Silent Auction both offer networking opportunities for our members and guests while raising funds for two scholarships for full-time students enrolled in the Hospitality Industry program in North Carolina universities and colleges.
Each meeting includes representatives from the Greater Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill/Orange County Convention & Visitors' Bureaus. Each bureau provides information on its public relations efforts, community projects and industry statistics. TAHMA members have the opportunity to get to know the leaders who bring customers through their doors by continuously promoting the Triangle Area to travelers and meeting planners across the country.
Networking With Peers
The TAHMA monthly meetings will bring you together with the people in your community who know your business and area. Social time is incorporated into every association function. We know that hoteliers learn from each other, and make sure that membership gives you the opportunity to do so.
