For nearly a century, HANTX has been building relationships with local, state and national elected officials, keeping them informed about issues that affect and impact our North Texas hotel and hospitality community.
Working together with our partners and with a unified voice, we are able to showcase the economic importance and impact our industry has on the local economy and workforce.
The Hotel Association of North Texas is a member of the Texas Hotel & Lodging Association and participates in "Converge on the Capital" during each Texas legislative session. We advocate on behalf of our members at a local and state level on issues that impact and are important and to the hospitality community and encourage our members to be part of our advocacy efforts.

Locally, HANTX stays on top of issues that are impacting our community and our members. During COVID, we advocated for the safe reopening of North Texas with local and state officials. In addition, we:
- Saved some members tens of thousands of dollars as we worked with city officials to delay regulations that would have created a significant cost expenditure for members.
- Stopped the enforcement on non-essential city ordinances until travel returns to normal
- Worked with our city and county officials on a number of issues including housing, evictions, parking, and inspection fees on behalf of North Texas hotels
