NEWH - November 2005 - (Page 3)

letter from the president I cannot believe that my two years of service as the NEWH, Inc. President is almost complete! I feel extremely blessed to have worked with and become friends with so many dedicated and talented people during my tenure. My role as President may be ending, but I hope the friendships are just beginning. NEWH had another banner year in 2005. I’d like to take a brief moment to highlight a few of our many achievements throughout the year: • For 2005 our NEWH Woman of the Year award went, for the first time, to an international recipient, Lyndall DeMarco, broadening our profile as a truly international organization. • Continuing to expand our efforts to provide regional networking opportunities, we held two very successful NEWH Regional Trade Shows in Washington, DC and San Diego, CA. • We’ve streamlined our scholarship procedures to attract and serve as many qualified and deserving candidates as possible. • And, finally, we’ve recently unveiled our brand new NEWH, Inc. website at to continue to enhance our international image by broadening how we connect to all our constituents. Hold on though, the year is not quite over yet. On November 13, many of our members will gather in New York City for the IH/M&R Show. NEWH is participating in several events that offer opportunities for nation-wide networking, including the Gold-Key Awards Breakfast, and as always, don’t forget to visit our NEWH trade show booth to meet fellow members, prospective members and our professional staff. Jeanne Varney Host Marriott Corporation In closing, I’d like to express my deep and heartfelt thanks to each and every member, corporate partner, supporter and staff member of NEWH, for truly, our success is a direct reflection of your selfless efforts. Because of all of your contributions and support, we continue to make a difference in the lives of our scholarship recipients, enhance our industry through our day-to-day work and promote opportunities for professional development for all our members. And, on a personal note, you have made both my job all the more easier and my tenure an extremely rewarding and enriching experience that has helped me grow both as a leader and an individual. Finally, although this is not the Oscars, I would also like to thank those that personally assisted me through my term. There are too many names to individually mention, but you folks know who you are. I am proud to hand the reigns of the office of President of NEWH, Inc. to an inspiring and extremely talented leader, Marla Davis for the 2006/2007 term. In the Spirit of Networking, Jeanne Varney 3
