Core Values
Interested applicants can apply for our open positions by sending their cover letter and resume to jobs@aahoa.com .
AAHOA’s workplace culture is based on respect for coworkers and for AAHOA Members. Employees work closely together to build an association that they can be proud to work for – and that members can be proud to join. We are a small, but mighty team. Our Team at AAHOA works the magic, together, behind the scenes. It’s no wonder our President and CEO coined the term: Team AAHOA. We’re a roll up your sleeves, meme-sending, birthday shout-out giving team.
AAHOA employs nearly 40 people in Atlanta, GA, and Washington, D.C., to help fulfill its mission to advance and protect the business interests of hotel owners through advocacy, industry leadership, professional development, member benefits, and community engagement – and continually seeks talented people to join its team.
We were founded in 1989 when Asian American hoteliers faced discrimination for simply being a minority. We have since grown to represent people from all walks of life, but what hasn’t changed is that we pride ourselves on diversity and inclusion.

Current Job Openings

Marketing & Communications Content Manager

“After being a news reporter for a decade, I was looking for a change. I had never heard of AAHOA when I stumbled upon the job description. After learning more about the company and all it has to offer, I took the job. But I’m staying here because of the people: the staff, the members, and the AAHOA community.”
Melissa Rosenbaum,
Director of Corporate Communications


"After facing a tragedy in my life, I took a break from working and I knew when I entered back into the workforce, I needed a company that was “family-oriented” and believes in community. I found just that when I started my employment with AAHOA. I stay at AAHOA because of my team members, AAHOA members, and the leadership that truly understands and supports me, not only professionally but personally."
Sherry Love,
