SUPPORTING JERSEY’S HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY SINCE 1957
The resources and services of the JHA are designed to support all elements of Jersey’s hospitality industry as well as representing the views of our members. As a trade association we have a strategic role to provide leadership and direction for the development of all elements of the visitor economy so that maximum economic benefit can be achieved for the Island.
We also aim to deliver real returns for our members, by positively promoting the industry’s priorities via partnerships with government, trade partners, other associations and organisations by effectively representing all elements of the hospitality industry in Jersey.
The JHA continues to develop a portfolio of benefits and services that are designed to support all types of hospitality businesses in all industry sub-sectors. This approach is also combined with promoting best practice to produce a quality customer experience for both visitors, and local customers in Jersey.
“TO BE THE REPRESENTATIVE BODY OF THE MEMBERS OF JERSEY’S HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE ASSOCIATION’S CONSTITUTION.”
THE JHA STRUCTURE
In 2023 the JHA Committee announced that it has agreed to a major restructure of the Association. The hospitality industry consists of many different business groups and to provide better representation, a proposal to create sub-sectors within the JHA was approved.
Following their appointment as Co-CEOs in September 2022, Ana and Marcus Calvani began working on a new structure to get more members involved and make the JHA the single, united voice of the hospitality industry.
Sub-sector groups that reflect the different business interests of members were set up, each providing a chair tto sit on a newly restructured board giving each sub-sector of the industry an equal voice.
