MHLA advocates the needs of its members to Federal, State, and County government officials. The organization also provides timely information and appropriate resources to its members, legislators, the media, and the community. Whenever necessary, MHLA provides written or oral testimony on issues that could impact both the visitor industry and the community. MHLA partners with Civil Defense, the Maui Police Department, the Department of Transportation, the Department of Health, the Maui Visitors Bureau, the Maui Chamber of Commerce, and various other agencies to ensure necessary and timely information is disseminated to visitors and employees in times of crisis.
MHLA supports the Hawaii Tourism Authority’s strategic plan for workforce development: to ensure a sufficient and highly qualified workforce is provided with meaningful careers and advancement opportunities. MHLA administers a program entitled the Academy of Hospitality & Tourism that is currently a part of the curriculum in 3 public high schools on Maui. It is MHLA’s objective to better prepare our youth for employment in the industry and keep them in Hawaii for the future.
