A Letter from your Chairman
Tony Phillips, 2017 GNHA Chair
This has been a big year so far with many exciting events for GNHA! I want to say thank you to everyone who came out to our GNHPAC Golf Tournament. We had 26 teams compete this year with record attendance. I want to say a special thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers, staff, and legends for donating money, items, and time to this great event. We raised over $8,000 dollars for the PAC!
Education is another a huge part of what we do as an association. We pride ourselves on being able to help those students pursuing a hospitality related degree. We are now accepting applications for GNHEF Scholarships. If you know of a deserving student please let them know about the available scholarship opportunities. There is more information below on the application process, deadlines, and eligibility. We really appreciate your help in recognizing these amazing individuals.
Also, we have our annual GNHA Stars of the Industry Awards coming up July 12th. This is a wonderful way for your company to showcase a star employee. We are now accepting nominations through June 28th. Please see the information below to submit an application. The winners will automatically be submitted for the state TnHTA Stars of the Industry awards.
The Predators games and CMA week are upon us! It's important for our members to remember that we all take part in portraying Nashville as the overwhelming choice for any event, after all, this is all about Hospitality. This is a very exciting time for Nashville!

MTA Public Transit Survey 

Public transit is a major issue in the Nashville area, particularly as it applies to employees in the hospitality industry. We're partnering with the Nashville MTA, TnHTA, and Nashville Originals to distribute a survey in order to assess how public transportation could best be improved to meet these needs. Click the link below to take the survey: 


This is a very short survey and should only take a couple of minutes to complete. Your responses will be integral in aiding the MTA as they develop a plan of action. Thank you to those who have already taken the survey!
