Welcome to the Tallahassee Chapter

Dear Hospitality Industry Colleagues,

I am honored to have been elected as your 2016 Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association (FRLA) Tallahassee Chapter President and look forward to working with our officers and board of directors.

The FRLA’s mission is to educate, protect and promote the hospitality and tourism industry throughout Florida. Our Tallahassee Chapter specifically serves our membership and the hospitality industry in Tallahassee, Leon and surrounding counties. Our members directly and exclusively benefit from our close working partnerships and affiliations with the National Restaurant Association (NRA), the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) and our many sponsors and Allied members who provide cost-saving products, services and educational and other programs that improve productivity and profitability.

We recently held our annual goal setting meeting and we are committed to stewarding further growth of our chapter through great business meetings, increased chapter networking events, educational and informational opportunities, and special events.

We look forward to enhancing our communication with you through these meetings and events, emails, FRL Magazine, social networking and mentorship for new operators, staff and students.

If you are a current member, thank you very much for your support. We are here to answer your questions and assist in any way we can. If you are a potential member we urge you to join us at one of our meetings or events. If you would like to do so, please contact FRLA Regional Director Nick Lowe at 850-661-4256.

Lastly, I would like to acknowledge our Past Chapter Presidents for their dedicated leadership. We look forward to a great year and we look forward to seeing you soon at one of our many upcoming meetings and activities. We continuously update our schedule of events, so please check back often and get involved.

Kindest regards,

Sam McKay
