SHA Holiday Reception

Special thanks to SHA members for their generous contributions of toys for the Stanford Settlement Neighborhood Center. The toys were collected during SHA's Holiday Reception at The Citizen Hotel in mid-December. Operation Cratchit (remember Scrooge?), a project of the Stanford Settlement Neighborhood Center, serves nearly 600 households in North Sacramento (2,265 people--1,195 of those being children).

Industry 911 Dial-Through Update

American Hotel & Lodging Association
Issue Background
As a result of the Kari's Law petition, the U.S. lodging industry has convened a task force of more than 50 lodging executives with expertise in telecommunications and security. The industry views the safety and security of guests and employees as a top priority, and is working closely with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), as well as Congress and other interested stakeholders. AH&LA has developed an industry recommendation and is creating resources to encourage and assist properties in ensuring direct 911 dialing procedures. Please download link to view the recommendation from AH&LA.
