Elenita (Lenny) Dizon, CPA, CMA
Lenny manages the AHLA accounting team, as well as the daily financial administration of the AHLA, the AHLA Services Corporation, the Canadian Hotel & Lodging Association (CHLA), the Alberta Liquor Store Association (ALSA), and four Destination Marketing Funds (DMFs). She joined the AHLA team in 2014.
Lenny received a Bachelor of Science in Accountancy degree from the Philippines, and went on to receive various certifications in Canada: Certified Management Accountant (CMA) and Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designations from both Ontario and Alberta, and a Certificate in Project Management from the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies.
Lenny can often be heard yelling from her desk, “I don’t embrace excuses. I embrace solutions!” … Ok, not really yelling because she’s actually pretty quiet — but she adapted that quote from Jon Taffer of one her favourite reality shows, Bar Rescue. She’s also a passionate traveller and recently fulfilled a couple of her bucket list destinations when she visited Hobbiton in New Zealand, and explored island life in the Cook Islands.
