member Hajimaru. During this event, the 1st Quarter Employees and Supervisors nominated by a variety of CHATA members were recognized and celebrated.

CHATA focuses each quarter on a different personal quality a person has that brings out the best in them while working in the hospitality/tourism industry. The main focus of this quarter is Commitment.

Being passionate and hardworking are just two components that add up to commitment. These are also two characteristics that continuously come up when describing these Stars of the Industry nominees. Being committed to their job is what made these nominees this quarter’s ‘Star of the Industry’.

It is imperative to recognize the most important contributors to our industry, our employees. Lizanne Dindial, President & CEO of CHATA was quoted saying “Motivation is what drives this industry and commitment is what keeps us going. Without commitment there is no progress to be made in the tourism business’’.
