The International Resort Management Association (IRMA) strives to advance the profession of resort management as a specialization within the hospitality industry and provide learning opportunities through publications and events for resort managers. In addition, IRMA supports career development and employment opportunities for resort managers, while stressing professionalism, certification and the ethical conduct within the industry.
IRMA recognizes that resorts are unique and more complex operations when compared to all other lodging and hospitality operations. Resorts share similar challenges in addressing the selling and servicing of the experience to both its guest and employees which a non-resort hotel does not. IRMA embraces this uniqueness by providing opportunities for true interaction, true learning, and true networking on a one-on-one level among resort owners and operators. This connection to others in the industry is very valuable as many resort managers operate in an independent environment that lacks the corporate structure and network of a major company or chain. For more information on the International Resort Managers Association, please contact James H. Johnson, Executive Director at (703) 610-9033 or JJohnson@ResortManagers.org. Information may also be obtained at the IRMA website: www.ResortManagers.org.
