Furthering and sustaining the hospitality industry is dependent on the students working to get into the field today. Without them, the future is shaky.

To help these students gain the education they need to truly succeed, the Greater Atlantic City Concierge Association and Casino Reinvestment Development Authority Foundation created a partnership to award scholarships for education in the hospitality industry and promote its value.

The scholarships are available to students from Stockton University, Atlantic Cape Community College and Fairleigh Dickinson University are eligible to apply; scholarships will be awarded in May, 2016.

Every year, the GACCA and CRDA hold a fundraising event, the Feb. 6 At the Shore Wine Tasting Art Show, with proceeds going to the CRDA Foundation. The organization then awards scholarships to local college students at the annual Host Awards in May.

The scholarships acknowledge and reward academically successful students who are studying subjects related to the hospitality and tourism industry. It is specifically designed to acknowledge students that excel in their studies, have chosen the hospitality industry, and who also have demonstrated a unique ability to reach out to others through personal initiatives.

A volunteer committee of members from the Greater Atlantic City Concierge Association and the CRDA Foundation will select the award recipients through a criteria selection form that uses a point system for compliance. The selection committee and their family members are ineligible for scholarships. Award payment will be sent directly to the attending college for the purpose of tuition and tuition-related expenses.

Applications are now available on the CRDA Foundation website. The deadline for to apply is March 4, 2016.

Explore Minnesota Tourism is accepting nominations for the agency’s tourism awards through Jan. 10, 2023. The awards honor people, marketing campaigns, and other initiatives that promote Minnesota as a destination.

To be considered for an award, a form must be submitted for each nomination. Explore Minnesota Tourism requests specific details about each nomination, i.e., goals, results, return on investment figures, accomplishments, etc. Supporting documents and creative elements help the Explore Minnesota Awards Committee score each submission.

 

"We have always done it this way" just doesn’t cut it anymore. The landscape of meeting planning is going through a quiet revolution, and the old rules no longer apply. Instead, they are being replaced with new treatments from the once-sacred conference tote bag to the way chairs in the ballroom are arranged. We talked to meeting planners who are creating fresher, more authentic approaches to your average meetings.  

From “Same Old” to “Can’t Miss”

 

There is nothing like the energy of a college campus as students return for the fall semester. By the time Labor Day hits, many students are itching to get back to their friends and return to routine, even at the cost of exams, papers, and presentations.
