"My involvement in the Education and Workforce Development Committee is important to me. The time spent working on the committee allows me to connect with industry professionals and other educators.  I enjoy the collaborative work we are doing. It keeps me current with industry trends and updates me on pressing issues in the lodging industry.  Our CSCC students are very fortunate that they have had the opportunity to attend the annual conference and utilize the scholarship money available to them." - Gretchen S.
