The Stars of the Industry Employee Awards Program is a chance to recognize outstanding accomplishments in the lodging industry. While the categories have evolved over the years, the concept is still the same: To honor lodging employees and properties that best symbolize quality service in this industry.
Colorado state winners will be determined each year at the fall annual conference. CHLA then submits the winners for consideration (in the spring) for national honors at the AHLA Summer Conference. All state entries for national honors only go through CHLA.
