The last year has been an exciting journey for the Master Innholders organisation and we have seen our reach, recognition and engagement increase.
Despite the cancellation of many of our regular activities, we have not been idle and the Executive has pushed forward some exciting new initiatives even when some other programmes have had to be paused. This report will outline our journey over the past 12 months.
In our last Five-Year Plan we committed ourselves to be a leading hospitality
organisation with the following goals:
Purpose: Committed to inspiring, developing and engaging with hotel professionals.
- To provide education and development
- To facilitate discussion within our industry
- To support charitable activities in our industry
- To have proper and transparent finance and governance
- To be recognised as an organisation of leading hoteliers
