SCRLA Hilton Head Chapter Committees
The South Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association Hilton Head Chapter committees are made up of experienced member hoteliers, restaurateurs and associate members.  Committees meet as needed to plan and discuss important topics relevant to the hospitality industry. Committees stimulate and provide opportunities for communication between professionals.

Education Committee , Jeff Kruse, Chair
Our Education Committee serves as the gateway between students (tomorrow’s workforce) and industry professionals. It consists of volunteers committed to fostering the next generation of restaurant industry leaders.   The committee’s efforts support the Technical College of the Lowcountry (TCL), The University of South Carolina Beaufort (USCB), South Carolina ProStart program, the South Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Education Foundation (SCRLEF) and other local education incentive efforts.  

Public Policy Committee , Michael Zorn, Chair
Our Public Policy committee guides our efforts to have an impact on political issues and regulations that affect hospitality businesses/industry and livelihood. Members work closely with Town of Hilton Head elected officials and key town staff to recommend policy and regulatory solutions that will protect and grow the business climate on the island.

Public Relations Committee, Paul Norris, Chair
The Public Relations Committee will professionally represent the SCRLA Hilton Head Area Chapter to distribute information regarding the chapter’s mission and vision.   The committee will assist the SCRLA communications team to provide content for the general public and peers with a positive outlook of the restaurant and lodging industry on the island.  The PR Committee will work closely with Board members about the various activities it’s focusing on.

Workforce Housing Committee, Clayton Rollison, Chair

This committee will support the increase of available reasonably priced on/off island housing for hospitality industry professionals.  The committee is engaged in educating members and town officials on all aspects of the housing shortage on the island. This includes being aware of federal, state and local initiatives impacting affordability as well as addressing best practices within our industry sector.  This committee also works to ensure that Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity are afforded to all members.

Chapter Goals
- Combat labor shortages for skilled workforce
- Develop a local education pipeline for our industry
- Housing for middle income managers and workers that is on the island
