NEWH - Summer 2017 - 26

SCHOLARSHIPS

Leadership Conference
Held every other year, the goal of the NEWH Leadership Conference is to strengthen personal and
professional leadership skills and industry knowledge among NEWH leaders, members, and industry
constituents by offering fresh business perspectives and strategies. Ultimately, the conference fulfills
the NEWH mission of education, networking, and scholarship in hospitality. NEWH has awarded more
than $4.5 million in scholarships to date. NEWH plans to open the next NEWH Leadership scholarship
in 2018 with a $10,000 scholarship award to be presented during the 2019 NEWH Leadership
Conference in Miami. Here's what some of the attendees had to say about the 2017 conference, which
took place in Denver this past February:
Santiago Arcila, Interior designer, 2011 Icon of Industry Scholarship recipient
"I clearly recall a slogan at the conference which stated 'It's not about who you know, but who knows you.'
The importance of networking has been evident throughout my career and here I find myself in a conference
with 500-plus people who are my colleagues and industry leaders; you can't put a value to that."
Gabrielle Diebner, University of Idaho, interior design and architecture, Northwest Chapter scholarship
recipient, 2016
"As a student, it was very insightful to meet other professionals in the field. The highlight for me was probably
networking. Building relationships with the Northwest board was amazing and I was also able to acquire a summer
internship through someone I met at the conference."
Aparna Avasarala, interior design, New York School of Interior Design, Ken Schindler Memorial scholarship
recipient, 2016 and New York chapter scholarship recipient, 2016
"As an emerging young designer, it's crucial to attend this conference. The connections you make are invaluable and
the panel discussions have a lot of impact as they discuss future and current trending topics. Learning hospitality
from an operational standpoint is also very valuable to elevating your design process."

New this year, NEWH launched the NEWH Leadership Scholarship open to
students pursuing a career in hospitality management. The scholarship winner
for 2017, Ana Cantillano, is a hotel administration major at the University of
Nevada, Las Vegas. She received a $5,000 scholarship and paid travel and
lodging to the 2017 NEWH Leadership Conference at the Marriott City Center
in Denver in February. Ana was honored during the Scholars Luncheon at the
2017 NEWH Leadership Conference.

How did you become involved with NEWH?
I became involved with NEWH through a fellow classmate who told
me of all the networking and scholarship opportunities available
through the organization. I decided to apply for a few scholarships,
and was awarded the first Leadership Conference Award. I couldn't
have been more thrilled.

What was your experience like at the Leadership
Conference?
The Leadership Conference was a blast. Meeting professionals from
all over the country was definitely one of the biggest highlights for
me. The conference was rich in amazing presentations and talks

that I am sure inspired attendees to be better people and better
professionals. The conference also offered great workshops and
tours of landmarks in the city of Denver. I learned so much about
what is pushing hotels to reinvent concepts and how consumers are
redefining wants and needs.

Why is NEWH important to you?
NEWH is an amazing resource for students and professionals in the
hospitality industry. Not only is NEWH so involved in fostering the
continuous growth of businesses and individuals, but its mission to
assist with educational funding of students like me is what makes
NEWH such a special organization.
