Scripps Ranch resident Vipul Dayal was recently appointed to the California Hotel & Lodging Association (CH&LA) Board of Directors. CH&LA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting hoteliers, with services ranging from legal guidance to educational conferences and regional seminars.

Vipul is president of VNR Management, a hospitality development and management company that operates family-owned hotels and businesses. The company was a recipient of the U.S. Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce’s 2016 Fast 100 Asian American Business Awards. Vipul has given back to the San Diego community as a volunteer leader on the County of San Diego’s Regional Human Trafficking and Commercial Exploitation of Children Advisory Council. He has also partnered with the Office of the District Attorney County of San Diego on its SAFE San Diego Hotel-Motel Human Trafficking Awareness Partner Initiative to fight human trafficking.

“I am honored to be part of CH&LA and its dedication in supporting strategic alliances and the value of California tourism and travel,” said Dayal. “I look forward to preserving the Association’s unparalleled standards in providing educational training and cost-saving programs.”
