Welcome from the President
Welcome to issue 3 of The Bulletin featuring all the latest news from The International Association of Hotel General Managers. It’s been a busy time, with the focus firmly on increasing value for our members. One of the most significant additions to our benefits platform is the introduction of a retirement savings plan, giving you the opportunity to supplement a home country pension and maximise your savings, whether retirement is right around the corner or still a long way off. We’re also very excited by our new Community Forum section on the website, which offers members an online space to network and share their experiences, plus, our new payment gateway is live so members can pay quickly and easily online.
Recently, we announced the launch of the International Association of Hotel Executives, a subsidiary organisation for key Hotel Executives. During the development of IAHGM we witnessed significant demand from this group asking for their own organisation and we felt a responsibility to create something unique that meets their needs. It was a logical step for us to take in order to benefit the industry as a whole, and especially as people in executive roles account for around 80% of the future GM talent pool.
As always we welcome your feedback and we look forward to keeping you up to date with our progress again next time.
Retirement savings plan launched
Saving for retirement is one of the most important ways to safeguard your future and maintain your standard of living. As part of our portable benefits platform, IAHGM has negotiated a medium to long term retirement savings plan for members, provided by Hansard International, a company based in the Isle of Man with nearly 30 years’ experience supplying savings and investment products to the international market. Hansard International specialises in medium to long term unit linked savings products and offshore bonds, enabling you to take advantage of the potential long term growth opportunities in stock markets around the world.

Introducing The International Association of Hotel Executives (IAHE)
IAHGM has launched a dedicated Association for Hotel Executives, giving our members exclusive access to a global database of senior hospitality professionals through our Career Management Centre (CMC).
Established as a subsidiary of IAHGM, The International Association of Hotel Executives (IAHE) is designed to recognise the contribution of key Hotel Executives to the hospitality industry and provide support and assistance throughout their careers.
Members of IAHGM will now have the opportunity to request a global search of the IAHE database of Hotel Executives, who have been processed by the CMC, when looking for suitable candidates to fill a job requirement. The CMC offers special rates to GMs who are members of IAHGM. As membership of IAHE grows, our candidate database will represent one of the largest pools of hospitality talent in the world.
