Red Ribbon Awards for Professional Contributions

Each year the Huntsville/Madison County Hospitality Association recognizes individuals with outstanding accomplishments within our industry.  One recipient will be honored with the Pineapple Award and five Red Ribbon Awards will be awarded – one from each membership category in HMCHA.  Those categories are: Food/Beverage, Lodging /Conference Center, Attraction, and Allied Partners.  Also, we have created a new Red Ribbon Award to honor one individual who has made outstanding contributions to our community through their time, actions, talents and dedication benefiting our Member Properties, HMCHA at large or other organizations in our community.  These awards are the industry’s highest honor in local hospitality!
