We are always keen to have folks join us in this work. If you have interest in event planning, writing, graphic design, web design, editing and wordsmithing, database management or networking with media channels, or any of the myriad skills it takes to build and run an organization, we would love your energy and skills.
If you would like to help develop one of the most respected short-term rental hosting associations of its kind, please consider joining one of our committees. Which one are you called to? Drop us a line @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Advocating for short-term rental hosts is an ongoing, long-term effort. The work of advocacy requires us to be continually alert.
Our mission calls for our community to stay engaged with governmental jurisdictions, to build relationships with key city players and Online Travel Agency (OTA) platforms.
We want our short-term rental segment of the travel industry to be treated as a valued and equal partner.
We aim to make our collective voice clear and strong.
CURRENT CHAIR: Robert Jordan
We are the team who speaks to the host community about the work of Host2Host.
We write newsletters, blog and social media posts, keep our website fresh, tell your stories, and help you and the world-at-large be aware of the positive impact of short-term rental hosts.
If you have interests in writing, graphic design, web design, editing or wordsmithing, we would love your energy and skills.
CURRENT CHAIR: Alan Colley
We create an atmosphere of caring, learning, support and connection with our fellow hosting community.
Through education we seek to give hosts a unique and independent voice, bringing a standard of excellence that is recognized by our peers, our communities, our government and those travelers choosing to stay with us.
Education includes: Meet-Ups, Special Events, Weekly Conversations, and educational courses as they develop.
CURRENT CHAIR: Debi Hertert
The Business Outreach Committee is focused on furthering relationships with businesses that serve short-term rental hosts.
Currently this work is centered around creating business sponsored events and advertising. This will increase hosts' awareness of businesses that may be of interest to them. The additional income stream helps to support Host2Host's overhead and lessen reliance on membership dues.
CURRENT CHAIR: Ryan Tigner
Membership is at the heart of Host2Host. We are responsible for understanding and creating the value proposition: why hosts and businesses want to join our organization.
The Membership Committee defines member benefits, qualifications, categories and membership dues.
We also manage the membership database, develop programs for new member recruitment, new member orientation, engagement and retention.
