NSMH: The weekend in pictures

By on March 2, 2012

A little twist on the usual blog!  In February, our team traveled to Washington, DC for the NSMH (National Society of Minorities in Hospitality) National Conference.  Hyatt is a proud sponsor of the conference.  We love the opportunity to engage with future industry leaders and the talented members of NSMH don’t disappoint!

Heidi, Brook, and I were all on various campuses and met up in DC.  I planned to travel to  Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) after the conference, so my rollerbags were filled to the brim.

The conference was held at Hyatt RegencyCrystal City.  As the host hotel, the team at Crystal City provided amazing service and the students attending the conference fell in love with the property!  I especially loved the Georgetown Cupcakes (my favorite) that were waiting for me when I arrived to my room.

During the conference, Brook and I participated in the Hospitality Olympics.  This year the Olympics were Boys vs Girls.  Luckily Brook and I didn’t have to actually compete, instead we were “tippers” and helped the Girls team during the last 30 seconds of each event.   I think we “tipped” the scales in their favor, because the Girls team claimed sweet victory!

The  NSMH Conference is one of the events that brings our entire team together.  We also have the opportunity to spend time with our Campus Ambassadors.

Our Campus Ambassadors and Corporate Management Trainees did an awesome job representing Hyatt at our booth during the career fair!  We’re so proud of them and they truly live the Hyatt brand!

After a full weekend of networking, presentations, interviews, and panels, I thought for sure I was overtired and seeing things at the airport.  But I have the picture to prove that Ben Franklin and I were departing the city on the same day.

We can’t wait for next year’s NSMH National Conference!  Hopefully Orlando, Florida will be ready for NSMH!
