2016 Membership Benefits

Joining the Pigeon Forge Hospitality Association (PFHA) could be the best decision you make this year.  Whether you own, manage or are employed by a lodging facility, restaurant, theater, attraction, retail or a business closely associated with the Hospitality Industry, there are plenty of unique benefits to be gained by joining the PFHA.

The money you save through legislative action on behalf of the hospitality industry, networking with other hospitality members, or discounts you may receive through your membership in the PFHA, far out weigh the member dues.

BENEFITS IN “BRIEF”

Expansion

After 25 plus years of successfully supporting Hospitality Lodging Industry in Pigeon Forge, the former Pigeon Forge Lodging Association (now PFHA) has expanded membership to include Pigeon Forge restaurants, attractions, theaters and retail.  We feel that our businesses can benefit and be much stronger as a whole if all of those in the Hospitality Industry are represented with one unified voice through the PFHA.

Networking Opportunities:

The PFHA is one of the largest hospitality/tourism associations in Tennessee and provides the opportunity for you to meet/network with other hospitality owners, operators, employees and suppliers on a regular basis throughout the year.  Members are encouraged to participate in the regular membership meetings/events and be active serving on committees within the PFHA.

Legislative Representation:

The PFHA works closely with both the state (TnHA) and national (AH&LA) associations to ensure that Pigeon Forge is well represented in all legislative issues that deal with the hospitality/tourism industry. The PFHA board and members work very closely with our city officials and local representatives to protect the Premier Resort Status we have all come to depend upon as well as the local/state tourism budget and funding. None of these things can be done without your ongoing and active support.  Your membership and dues directly benefit these very important ongoing efforts.

Meetings and Special Events:

The PFHA meets monthly throughout the year, generally the 2nd Thursday of each month at 11:30 am at various venues.  The meeting agendas feature current/ongoing topics and key speakers that directly affect the Hospitality Industry.  Whether it is a speaker from OSHA guiding us on the most current policies, or a representative from one of our local governmental organizations, we learn ways to better our business, improve the quality service we provide our guests and create a work environment our employees are proud to be associated.

It is important to note that over the past 25 plus years, the PFHA has always been, and continues to be, committed to supporting our tourism based community and economy.  In 2013, in addition to our contribution to Political Action Committees, PFHA made thousands of dollars in charitable contributions to local entities including Walter’s State Community College financial assistance, The Boys and Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains and scholarships for Pigeon Forge High School students.
