Nominations Open!

Serve on the 2022 Hospitality Minnesota Board of Directors


As an integrated association, Hospitality Minnesota used its voice to advocate for industry wide relief throughout the pandemic. The need to focus on aid and recovery interrupted plans we intended to implement following the merger, but it did not lessen our commitment to them, or to the future of the hospitality industry in Minnesota. As the rebuilding proceeds so, too, does the reimagining.


We are now seeking 8 members-in-good-standing to join the governing board in January 2022.


This is an exciting time to be part of the Association Board, and we are looking for individuals committed to the health of the organization and the future of the industry. You can learn more about what is involved by reading the Board Position Description and apply by completing the online Application.


You can make an application for yourself or nominate an industry colleague.


We need representation from diverse industry sectors, business types and sizes, geographic locations, and cultures, etc. – to bring a wide array of strengths to our work. We are particularly in need of representation by women and by individuals with interests in working on Finance/Banking; Strategic Planning; Sales and Customer Experience; Training and Workforce Development and Networking.


Nominations are open to all active members in good standing, including Allied and Tourism Partners, until October 23. Again, individuals may nominate a colleague or themselves.

Thank you,
