                                       CALL FOR NOMINATIONS AND SUBMISSIONS

Nominations for the Hotel Association of Canada’s (HAC) annual Awards are now open. The Awards, developed in 2004 and
introduced at the 2005 Annual Conference, proudly recognize HAC members* (individuals, companies or properties) that have
demonstrated significant accomplishments, exemplary leadership and tireless commitment to Canada’s lodging industry. The
goal of HAC’s awards program is to reward strong standards in the industry that will enable this country to remain competitive.
This year's winners will represent some of the finest examples of professionalism, quality and perfection.

This Call for Nominations and Submissions plays an integral role in that process. We encourage your participation, and invite
you to join us in celebrating the contributions made by your associates and fellow professionals. Special consideration will be
given to programs produced “in-house” (e.g., without the use of an external public relations firm or advertising agency).
