Happy Summer from KCHA!

We're going to give this quarterly newsletter a try - as a way to keep you informed of upcoming meetings, events, industry news, etc. 

Our first announcement is to tell you that our current President, Nick Fischioni from Hyatt Hotel, has resigned his position. And while we are sad to see him go, we are excited for him as he has accepted a position with White Lodging and will be leaving the West Michigan area. This means KCHA VP Brian Behler will step back in and will run the organization for the remainder of the year.

AUGUST MEETING:
Thursday, August 18 (3:30-5pm) at the new
Homewood Suites Downtown Grand Rapids.
Our speaker will be Kris Larson for Downtown GR Inc
