CFHLA membership is dedicated to supporting the industry in Central Florida.
“It is an honor to receive the endorsement of CFHLA,” said Edwards. “We are known for our tourism and hospitality and the careers this industry provides for our citizens. I have enjoyed working with CFHLA to promote Central Florida and I look forward to continuing our work together.”
