Coping with Covid

“Please join the Huntsville-Madison County Hospitality Association as we take the first step into getting back to ‘normal’ since the COVID-19 pandemic began back in March.  We are excited to work with the Von Braun Center in creating a safe environment that enables our hospitality partners to once again network together, enjoy a delicious meal, and learn from a well-respected and knowledgeable speaker. In this time of uncertainty and during a crisis that has hit our particular industry extremely hard, we are proud to be one of the first organizations to make this move back into in-person gatherings!

With that being said, we are taking every precaution to ensure a safe, healthy and fun luncheon for our members and guests.  There are guidelines that the Von Braun Center must abide by due to state regulations, as well as best practices that your HMCHA Board of Directors will be implementing.  These guidelines are as follows:

  • Every guest must wear a mask (except while eating). If you don't have one, there will be some at the registration table (limited supply)
  • If you have a temperature, do not attend – your fee will be refunded.
  • Pre Pay online for this luncheon to ensure a touch-free process.
  • There will be hand sanitizing stations throughout the facility – please make use of them as needed.
  • The tables will be setup according to safe social distancing guidelines– please do not relocate the chairs during the luncheon.
  • Finally – while this is a networking event and we are all thrilled to see everyone again in-person after such a long break, please be mindful of everyone’s personal space and remember to not shake hands or hug. (We know that’s a tough one!)



Margaret L. Bibb, Psy.

Lunch will begin promptly at 11:45 am and run until 1:15 pm, but feel free to stay after for networking opportunities.
Everyone who attends MUST PRE-REGISTER in advance. Walk-ins are not guaranteed a seat or a meal, so please register ahead to avoid late fees.

We look forward to seeing you soon!”
