Happy December! It’s hard to believe how quickly 2017 has passed by! SLAA had a great year – we celebrated our 30th anniversary, saw some great venues, celebrated leaders in the industry, and enjoyed a great auction. I’m proud of the work the organization has done this year!

Congratulations to SLAA as well – we raised almost $4,000 with our Silent Auction at Das Bevo this year! Because of your generosity, we will again be able to give scholarships to deserving high school and college students who want to pursue a career in tourism and hospitality.

It has been my privilege to serve as your President. I have enjoyed each and every meeting, networking opportunity, and happy hour! I look forward to continuing to serve on the board as the Past President, and on the Fundraising and Communications Committees. Should you need anything, or if I can be useful in any way, please feel free to reach out to me. I’m looking forward to seeing where we go in 2018!

2017 President
