25 Years of Campus Hospitality

The Campus Hospitality Managers Association (CHMA) hosted its 25th Anniversary Conference in Niagara Falls, Ontario at the end of May, celebrating years of campus-based professional development and networking for bar, restaurant, pub and nightclub professionals.

CHMA has members from campuses across Canada (including my college, which I wasn’t aware of while in school!). The organization started in the 80′s with four institutions coming together to network and discuss campus hospitality.  Over years, (as campus ‘beer halls’ began to change into pubs and clubs….I’m guessing beer halls are simply giant rooms where you drink beer…..?), more campuses joined the group and CHMA became one of the most important associations in the Canadian hospitality industry. 

This year’s conference was a special one for Molson.  We were presented with the supplier of the year award and recognized for our 25 years of affiliation.

Congrats to CHMA on 25 years of great work!
