To the Northeast (the Beast):

My name is Erica Rudy, and I am ecstatic to represent you this year as the Northeast Regional Chair. Coming from the Temple University chapter, I have grown to love and respect what NSMH is and does for its members and hope to continue passing the legacy down the line this year. Since my first time attending an NSMH National Conference, I knew that NSMH was the organization that would teach me about the hospitality industry beyond the classroom and prepare me to work in the industry. As we take on this year together, I am here to help and support all of the region in having the best and most successful year yet!

I look forward to seeing you all at Pennsylvania State University this fall at the Northeast Regional Conference, on October 27-29th. The host hotel for the conference will be the Hyatt Place State College.  Reserve your room by calling 1800-233-1234 (#G-NSM1) no later than October 2, 2017 to get the discounted rate of $119 per night.  Register for the NSMH Northeast Regional conference via the NSMH portal at for $60 by October 13, 2017.  After October 13 and on-site the price will be $75.

I hope we can unite and band together as a region, so when Nationals comes we can remind the other regions why we are called the Northeast Beast. Speaking of Nationals, I am excited to announce that this year’s National Conference and Career Fair will be held at the Hilton Chicago, from February 15th to February 18th. I look forward to seeing you at both Regionals and Nationals this year!

As the Northeast Regional Chair, I am here for you. If you ever have any questions, comments, concerns, or ideas, please do not hesitate to contact me.
