2016 Has been a GREAT year! Print

President's Report

We have been hard at work for you all year long. We've had a very successful year in building up our membership and improving our member benefits with lots more work ahead for 2017.  I want to thank all of our current board members for their assistance and hard work this year. It takes a team and we've had a productive year working together.

Here are few highlights from 2016:

  • Built out and implemented our new Webiste which has enabled us to post our events and take payments for registrations online. We hope that you have found our new site to be informative, helpful and of value to you as a Member. We will continue to work on improving the information provided here, as well as improve our communication with you as a member. We just need you guys to open / read your emails from us to keep you informed.

  • Secured a local resource to provide ServSafe® Certification training at an exclusive Members only pricing model. Classes begin in January of 2017. See our Events Page for schedule of upcoming classes.

  • Membership Drive was a huge success as we've grown our membership to 45 paid members which is double our 2015 membership. Thanks to all who joined or renewed in 2016 and I look forward to seeing you back again in 2017.

  • Heard several excellent speakers this year, including a joint education event with IAVM and SGMP that provided the opportunity for our members to earn CEUs. Our 2017 Speaker lineup is quickly getting booked, so stay tuned as we get our schedule entered on the site in the coming weeks.

  • Created a Members Support Group on Facebook where members can collaborate and share news and announcements and to help facilitate communication amongst our members. If you haven't joined the group yet, please request access here.

 Our next upcoming Event is our Annual Pineapple Awards Dinner. We're celebrating our 20th year and hope that you will plan to join us! Register online to reserve your seats or table and be sure to invite all your Hospitality friends to join us!

One last request, please join us on our Social Channels and help us get the word out about all of the various Hospitality happenings going on in Huntsville / Madison County area. We'll be working on collecting information from each of our Member Properties to share, so be sure to connect with us online. 

     

Thanks and we'll see you at our next meeting! ~ Libby Webb, President HMCHA
