2017 has been a very active and productive year for NHLA and our members. We offered or participated in over 75 events. These events included activities such as educational seminars, conferences and social networking outings. We also provided many activities and programs for our Women in Lodging and Next Reigning Generation members including philanthropic support for local charities.
A new year brings new programs and opportunities. Professional development is of key interest to everyone so we will be providing strong focus in this area in 2018.
