• Associated Luxury Hotels International Raised $2,689 For The Navy Seal Foundation

During the recent Associated Luxury Hotels International (ALHI) annual Industry Advisory Council conference participants were given a unique opportunity to support the Navy and families of those who serve. 
 
The conference was held at Hotel del Coronado in Coronado (San Diego), Calif. During the conference, IAC attendees – which consisted of meeting professionals, incentive/ recognition specialists, association executives, and hoteliers – participated in the ALHI IAC Walk for a Cause. Participating attendees were given pedometers which they were to wear throughout the conference.  
 
On the last day of the conference ALHI collected the total steps from each participant. The group walked a total of 2,689 miles. Thus, ALHI donated $2,689 to the Navy SEAL Foundation. This foundation provides immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community and its families. The Foundation was specially selected as the recipient because the Navy SEAL Training Base is located just down the beach from Hotel del Coronado.​

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.   

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.
