Long Island is approximately 118 miles in length, with its eastern-most tip jetting into the Atlantic Ocean at Montauk Point.
At its widest point, north to south, the Island is nearly 23 miles wide. It is 1,401 square miles, and has a population of nearly 7.8 million people. Nearly 40% of New York State's population reside on Long Island.
Long Island is made up of two counties, which are Nassau and Suffolk, and two boroughs of New York City, which are Queens and Brooklyn, formerly known as Kings County and Queens County.
The Mission of the LIHA, formed for charitable purposes, is to provide a network for members to review common hospitality industry challenges and hospitality best practices, exchange ideas, and raise awareness about services that the members, industry leaders, and industry partners can utilize to address pertinent issues.
The LIHA seeks to promote a vibrant hospitality industry on Long Island and to provide a platform for various industry and affiliated sectors to collaborate and support one another. Association activities will seek to engage local hospitality students to participate in association meetings and events enabling them to network with industry leaders for career development and advancement.
The fundraising endeavors of the association are intended to raise funds primarily for the purpose of financial scholarships for students studying Hospitality related fields at local schools, with the goal of retaining tomorrow’s industry leaders to continue to work and reside on Long Island.
