NHLA Golf TourneyOn Saturday, May 11, we will hold our annual golf tourney this year at Desert Pines.  Lexus of Las Vegas is sponsoring a beautiful vehicle for a hole-in-one.  Golfers will enjoy a BBQ lunch after the tourney while awards and prizes are taking place.  This is a great day with colleagues and friends on the beautiful course.  Come on and play.  Proceeds benefit scholarship programs.

2019 CGSP

We will be in Reno on May 17 for our annual Certified Guest Service Professional workshop and exam.  The CGSP designation is the most prestigious guest service achievement recognition in the industry.  Over 110 NHLA members have participated and passed, earning their place amongst the best.  We appreciate the sponsorship of this program provided by the Timothy S Y Lam Foundation.

Northern Nevada

A NNV council meeting will follow the workshop as leaders meet with NHLA to discuss focus and upcoming events for our members in this region.


Read to Lead

May 21 will bring the next WIL Read to Lead book club session.  We are going to read Dare to Lead by Brene Brown.  We will meet at Robert Irvine’s Public Lounge to get started.  The club is fun, productive, develops rapport with other women in the industry and builds confidence in developing new leadership skills.  Register.

Just another productive month at NHLA in May!
