AHR CR MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS

Obtaining relevant information is perceived as one of the most important advantages of the AHR CR membership. You need not waste your time seeking out all the information - we will do that for you.

The main mission of the AHR CR is to lobby and promote the interests of entrepreneurs in the hospitality industry.
