Emily Thompson
2017-2018 Southeast Regional Chair
Chapter: Northern Arizona University (NAU)



My name is Emily Thompson and I am thrilled and honored to serve as the 2017-2018 Western Regional Chair. I am a senior at Northern Arizona University (NAU), studying Hotel/Restaurant Management.

I joined NSMH my freshman year at NAU as a way to make friends. I was an out of state student, struggling to make friends and find my way around college. Immediately, I was welcomed in by the NSMH family and I have been able to take on the roles of Treasurer, Vice President, and President for my chapter. My personal and professional development has grown immensely due to this incredible organization.

My goal this year is to help all chapters in the Western Region accelerate to be the best they can be. I can’t wait to meet all the members of the best region, from our first year to our fourth year members. I am excited to continue growing the best region, connecting members, and expanding our professional networks.

Mark your calendars for the 29th National Conference to be held in the windy city of Chicago, IL at the Hilton Chicago, February 15th-18th, 2018.

I am also excited to announce that this year’s Western Regional Conference will be held in Anaheim, CA from November 3-5th, 2017.

The host hotel for the conference will be the Doubletree by Hilton Anaheim-Orange County.  Reserve your room no later than October 16, 2017 to get the discounted rate of $119 per night.  Register for the NSMH Western Regional conference via the NSMH portal at nsmh.org/portal for $60 by October 20, 2017.  After October 20 the price will be $75. I can’t wait to see you all there!

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, or suggestions for this upcoming school year!

With NSMH pride,

Emily Thompson
2017-18 Western Regional Chair
