The current situation that affected many of our members nationwide prompted us to change the plan for an outside of the country event.
The year 2020 is our 20th year of existence as a voluntary professional organization, thus we wish to conduct the AAHRMEI Congress on May 4 & 5, 2020 with the theme “Navigating a 20:20 Vision in Response to Gender Mainstreaming for Hospitality Industry” at the Ballroom of Manila Grand Opera Hotel at Doroteo Jose St. corner Rizal Avenue, Manila. This activity aims, not only to gather the members for camaraderie, learning, and sharing but to have an intervention to address the vulnerability of workers and students in hotels, restaurants, resorts, casinos, cruise line facilities, theme parks, and tour guiding exposures.
With your kind assistance, we wish to gather as many members possible from your Schools and partner establishments. The practicum coordinators are enjoined to conduct a survey among the OJT/ Practicum students related to security and sexual harassment, as a working document during the workshops. A completed and analyzed survey will be recognized during the Congress, thus it is scheduled for submission on April 10, 2020.
A minimal cost of Three Thousand Five Hundred Pesos (P3,500) is required to shoulder the cost of food, venue, materials, speakers’ honorarium, and such other incidental expenses. Please be informed that the venue has limited space, thus the deadline for reservation is set on March 6, 2020, with the down payment of P1,500, and the full payment is due on April 3, 2020. Kindly deposit to AAHRMEI BDO Account #4580226502 the required down payment and send a scanned copy of the deposit slip with your name to firstname.lastname@example.org not later than the set deadline. We are hoping for your kind understanding. We can be reached at Mobile Nos.: 0928 610 8941; 0908 667 9028 / Telephone Nos. 8567 2696.
UPDATE RE AAHRMEI NATIONAL CONGRESS
Our dear AAHRMEIans & Friends,
We have made several follow-ups re our request for CHED Endorsenent which we submitted last January 20 yet. As of today, we learned through Com. Darilag that there is currently a moratorium on issuing CHED Endorsement. He also assured us that it is safe for us to push through with our event on May 4 & 5 even without the CHED Endorsement! Thanks God for always blessing our activities despite some hindrances.
May I then remind you for your official confirmation by sending your deposit of 1,500 PhP by March 6. Glad to say that some have already sent their full payment of 3,500 PhP. Thank you!
Let’s keep our fingers crossed that soon the current worldwide concern would be addressed permanently.
Please refer to the invitation so you may be reminded of some important points.
