For this week’s assignment, you will be preparing a written essay using APA format. Refer to the APA resources provided in the classroom and in our online library for formatting questions. Be sure to review the feedback from your previous assignments. Your essay should be 2 – 4 pages of written content, along with a properly formatted title page and reference page. An abstract should not be included. The content for your essay is described below.
Choosing a professional organization focused on a specific segment of the hospitality industry that you are interested in (American Hotel & Lodging Association, National Restaurant Association, ARAMARK, and Compass Group are examples), describe and assess their role and influence within the industry segment.
For the writing assignment, discuss who the group is, their roots, how they influence the industry, and analyze their role in reacting to or preventing a specific issue related to the industry. An example would be how the AH&LA has been engaged with immigration reform or minimum wage or how ARAMARK is incorporating “green” business practices to reduce environmental harm.
Use the school’s online library to conduct further research on this issue. Your essay should outline how this issue came to be important to the industry, what the organization recommends as far as this legislative issue and why, and how this issue has impacted the industry.
Be sure that you clearly define the issue, using a clear thesis statement. A thesis statement basically states what you are proving in the essay. Develop the issue within your essay and include a concluding paragraph. All the supporting resources within the essay should add support to that thesis statement.
Each response should be at least 75 words in length.
