Subcommittee Vice-Chairs: Steven Hollis, Fantasy World Resort and Clint Militzer, Aloft/Element International Drive

Throughout 2022, the Diversity Committee's Leadership Mentoring Subcommittee focused on developing and creating a brand new mentoring program that provided a diverse group of mid-level leaders (lodging and allied) with the opportunity to get more involved with CFHLA and help them advance their careers in hospitality.

Then in January 2023, the 16 Mentors and 8 Mentees of the inaugural program were honored for their successful completion of Class I. Congratulations to all who helped us create this brand-new program with their time, energy and expertise and we are looking forward to launching Class II later in 2023!
