Our History

Birth of AAHRMEI

AAHRMEI Gathering

AAHRMEI Looks back to its humble beginning when a group of 22 deans and faculty members met to establish what is now composed of more than 3,470+ strong members, individuals, and institutions combined.

Twenty years ago Mrs. Sylvia S. Ama, then the director for Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Management of DLSU-College of Saint Benilde, conceived the importance of an organization to look into the concerns of Hotel and Restaurant Management and other related courses.

This idea came into reality in February 2001 when Dr. Gloria Baken Wong-Siy was asked to join the trip to Singapore to evaluate the performance of a 3rd training partner together with the CHED-NCR Director, Dr. Amelia A. Biglete who was impressed with the effect of the training abroad.

Thus, she instructed Dr. Siy to come up with a strong organization which could help CHED monitor the implementation of the International Practicum Training Program guidelines so that this program could be sustained. Inspired with this idea, Mrs. Ama and Dr. Siy worked on the Constitution and By Laws with the assistance of Dr. Adela J. Ruiz and called for an organizational meeting on February 24, 2001.

Their expectation of at least 5 participants was exceeded when 22 energetic and enthusiastic administrators supported the idea of coming up with an organization of deans, heads, and coordinators of HRM, Tourism, Food Technology, Nutrition, Home Economics and other related courses to advance and address the concerns affecting them on February 22, 2001

the CHED-NCR Director, Dr. Biglete called for a meeting to present the report on the Singapore visit and to address the concerns of different schools. During the workshop. Dr. Siy, the elected president, requested that the AAHRMEI officers be inducted at the end of the activity. Since then, AAHRMEI worked hard and has lived to its objective of supporting CHED, TESDA, DOT, and other agencies to complement other organizations in order to pursue quality and excellence in hospitality education. It has extended its effort by establishing linkages abroad to gain recognition for the hospitality and tourism education in the Philippines.
