The Association of Lodging Professionals (ALP) has undergone some significant changes recently, including bringing on Sarah Gazi as its new CEO, taking over for the former Interim CEO, E. Scot Fuller-Beatty.

Sarah has been in association management for more than 20 years and she envisions shaping a new direction for ALP through listening to its members and partners.  The organization has already been expanding its membership, with a stronger focus around community and collaboration.
