The Association is legally registered as a Non Governmental Organisation working in the Non Profit sector.
Membership is open to executives working in the Hospitality sectors – Hotels and Restaurants – Leisure, Travel and Tourism.
In its short period of existence the Association has been busy planting the foundation for it to grow in future years.
Within the first two years of formal existence the Association has been registered with the Commission for Voluntary Organisation and has even joined another organisation in the international sphere, the Euro Mediterranean Academy for Tourism which has its base in Cyprus.
The Malta Association of Hospitality Executives was formed in May 2009 through the initiative of a number of hospitality professionals. It was felt that the local hospitality professionals needed an organisation to promote a higher quality of management in our industry.
An interim committee was formed to work on the framework needed for such an organisation such as the Articles of Association and other basic requirements. This committee then presented its work at the first Annual General Meeting which was held in November 2009.
