Yay for alliteration! Toasty Tuesdays are back – courtesy of NEWH – and so are the New York Chapter’s efforts to connect and inspire design industry professionals. This year’s first (finally!) was held last night at Union Square Lounge in Manhattan.
If you’re not involved with NEWH (which formerly stood for National Executive Women in Hospitality but now simply goes by The Hospitality Industry Network) then you should be, especially if you’re new to the industry and looking to meet some new faces. Toasty Tuesdays started last year when they decided they wanted to do more casual events that would allow people to come together and learn more about their peers and about the organization and its goals.
Not only does it hope to make connections for people but, to date, NEWH has also given in excess of $2,050,000.00 in scholarships to young people wishing to pursue careers in the hospitality industry.
The next TT will be on Sept. 8 at the Crowne Plaza in Times Square and will include a hotel tour. Membership is not necessary to attend or participate but if you are interested, the New York chapter offers these three types:
General membership ($150): for those who have been actively involved in hospitality or related fields for one or more years.
Associate membership ($50): for those who have completed an accredited area of hospitality related studies within a 12 month period.
Student membership (free): for any student in the greater New York area studying in a hospitality field.
Pricing is different for each chapter. For more information please visit www.newh.org and for questions regarding the New York Chapter please contact Samantha Mittler at 330.518.7320 or firstname.lastname@example.org
