Check out our Stars of the Industry nominees and winners

  Out of the concern for the safety and health of others and the governor's request to avoid gatherings, we were unable to do an in-person event this year. However, that does not stop us from honoring and recognizing the Stars of the Industry. These incredible individuals are helping to drive Nevada's hospitality to a positive recovery through their dedication, determination and exemplary skills. Congratulations to all! See who won.

NHLA looking for presenters for virtual sessions

  We have received many requests from members for a session that presents information on tips for in-depth use of virtual programs, primarily Zoom and Microsoft Teams. We are looking at putting together these sessions for early January and are looking for a couple of experienced members in this area who would be willing to participate in the presentations. We are looking at offering two separate sessions, one will be for Zoom and the next will be on Teams. Each session will be up to 45 minutes. The requests are on the lines of technical usage...buttons, bells, and whistles-"how to". If you are interested in participating, please contact us. We appreciate the support and assistance.
