NEWH - November 2005 - (Page 5)

upfront Greetings, Welcome to our final issue for the year. Where has this year gone? It seems just yesterday that I attended the ALIS conference here in Los Angeles, meeting and talking to key hospitality leaders about what might turn out to be a “promising year.” Now, all we can hope for is that we can complete our projects and meet our deadlines before the holiday season is upon us. It used to be that we all had time to plan our business strategies and develop a timeline Joanie Neumayer for completion. The world of business as we know it has changed and we must all continue to be flexible in our approach to succeed. Our part here at the magazine is to continuously strive to bring strong editorial and business associations that will bring value in your businesses. This year has brought us many tragedies worldwide that have touched everyone’s business in some way. The Katrina disaster, the earthquakes in Pakistan and the bombings in London have not curtailed the strong optimistic energy for our industry. As I reflect on my first year as Editor — my “weekend job” as I call it – it really is all about giving back. Many of our members have endless examples and stories of how NEWH has helped them personally. As for me, I am here because one day, on the editorial committee a few years ago, we were discussing sourcing for an article. I approached Cheryl Rowley for an article and the following year I was working with her firm. Find a way to get involved in your community. No matter how little time you might think you have, the payback will be rewarding. In closing, I would like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation for the editorial team that has worked endless hours to raise the profile and expand the global voice of our organization. Please keep in touch and continue send us your thoughts and ideas.
