Happy December!

I hope your holiday season is off to a great start. What a wonderful time of year to be in St. Louis with all the amazing holiday activities, shopping and more to enjoy.

I can’t believe it’s already been a year! We had such a fantastic year with meetings at great venues with interesting and engaging speakers and got to end it all with another successful silent auction. I’m so proud of the work the organization has done this year!

Congratulations to SLAA as well – we raised over $5,000 with our Silent Auction at the Saint Louis Science Center this year! That is the highest amount in many years! 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. Thank you again for your donations and support.

It has been my privilege to serve as your President. I have truly enjoyed getting to know our members better and working together to make SLAA as beneficial an organization as possible. I look forward to continuing to serve on the board as the Past President and Explore St. Louis Liaison. Please feel free to reach out to me if you ever need anything. I look forward to seeing everyone at our 2019 events.
