The winter session for our Women in Lodging mentor program will begin. Women interested in being a mentor and sharing advice and experiences with mentees should sign up as a mentor. Women looking to expand horizons and knowledge have the perfect opportunity to do so when participating as a mentee. The winter session begins January 21.
On January 29, NHLA Emerging Leaders members have a fantastic opportunity to attend “New Year, New You” at the TISOH campus.
