    • Atlanta : the issue is driver’s licenses
      The Atlanta Chapter is lead by a group of seasoned members who meet on Tuesday evenings at 5pm. If you are a new member and wish to learn about the industry (we never call it that publically) this is a good meeting to attend. Our central area of advocacy involves pushing back on Airbnb's refusal to let owners/managers ask guests for thier  driver's licenses. We assert that a driver's license is necessary to screen people but also to thwart criminal efforts such as forgery or the use of someone else's credit card. Airbnb has been a partner in achieving much of our legislative agenda but we part ways on this issue. Yet, if the city of Atlanta requires it, they must allow us to to do it. It is, after all, a safety issue.

    • STROAGA ATLANTA
      City of Atlanta Progress- Do not forward or discuss with non-members The regularly scheduled Atlanta leadership committee will not meet tomorrow Tuesday November 3rd. I want to be respectful of everyone's need to get out there and vote and of their time and there is in essence nothing to report at this moment. All is good at this point in time. Westmoreland Draft Ordinance- This ordinance will be heard on November 10th at 1:30 at the community development meeting. The present count is that we have 8 members favorable votes.  You are asked to make a call (using desirable demographics -as before) on the previous Monday between 4-7pm. Myself and Chloe (Airbnb) and others continue to address objections and game support. Shook Draft Ordinance- The original ordinance calling for a ban on short term rentals continues to make its way through the NPU process. Remember that NPUs  remain important and it is crucial that members of the leadership team continue to attend an advocate on our issues relentlessly at these NPU meetings! This is because, if push back from neighbors/NPUs is significant- some council persons may change their vote. I will supply leadership committee members with information going forward and will have a government affairs team meeting this Friday. Have a good week!
