Diversity Committee

In 2020, CFHLA created the Diversity Committee with a mission to serve as a community leader in cultivating an environment of diversity and inclusion throughout the Central Florida Hospitality Industry and to establish a framework to be administered within CFHLA Lodging establishments and partners. After a year of focus within the CFHLA Board of Directors, the Diversity Committee is now open for all CFHLA members to join one of the newly created subcommittees. Each of these subcommittees is designed to help CFHLA focus on several new strategic initiatives for 2023 and beyond.

If you have any questions relating to this committee, please contact Director of Strategic Initiatives and Partnerships Melanie Anesh, at (407)-313-5022 or
