A Letter from your Chairman
Tony Phillips, 2017 GNHA Chair
I want to thank all of our members who came out to support our 2017 GNHA Stars of the Industry awards last week. The annual Stars of the Industry luncheon is a very important event.  These awards give us the opportunity to honor the talented associates, employees, and vendors who make it possible for us to offer top-notch hospitality to our guests.  We also get to recognize the outstanding work that our members are doing in community service, guest relations, and special events to make Nashville a better place to live and visit. We were able to give individuals in our industry some very deserving and meaningful awards. I would like to recognize them again:
