AICR Australian President's Welcome

AICR Australian President

Welcome to AICR Australia, a non-profit organisation. AICR is the International Association for Deputy Managers and Front Office Managers of Luxury Hotels.

I first became involved with AICR as a competitor and since 2010 I have acted as the Treasurer of the New Zealand section. I am also proud to be the President of AICR Australia and very excited to have relaunched this prestigious organisation in Australia.

On joining AICR Australia you will also become part of the Amicale network with over 2000 AICR members worldwide.

Via this website we endeavour to reflect our passion for hospitality and front office management professions. We also wish to inspire the younger generation and develop our network with other hoteliers and business partners.

Since AICR was founded in 1964 with several front office managers of luxury hotels on the French Riviera Côte d’Azur, Amicale has expanded to become an international organisation that now represents 18 countries.

It is our privilege to perpetuate the spirit of Amicale, where human relationships are an endless source of inspiration, exchange and mutual support. At the same time, we would like to integrate new technologies and communication media that have changed the vision of the hospitality industry.

AICR allows its members to participate regularly in various events organised throughout the year.

I hope to be able to meet you at one of our future events very soon.

It is important that AICR International consistently advances itself in this ever-changing age, but do not lose sight of old traditions – as these are important foundations that AICR International was built upon. AICR Presidents picture was taken in Vienna 2016. This year the DCT winner was Beatrice Gallo from UK.
