Greetings Members and Supporters of Canadian Hotel Marketing and Sales Executives.
It was an awesome run!
CHMSE was created in 1980 as a truly Canadian Association, by a group of forward-thinking, energetic hospitality individuals dedicated to the professional development and advancement of salespeople in the hotel industry.
Over the years a lot has changed. The leadership mantle was thrown to successive boards of directors and committees. Countless members stepped up to join, guide, and support the Association over the past 43 years. Relationships were formed, both professional and personal. Business was conducted. Learning was experienced. Fun was had.
The worldwide pandemic was declared in March 2020 a week before CHMSE’s 40th anniversary celebrations, which were ultimately cancelled. As a non-profit, volunteer-run Association operating in a volatile industry, CHMSE felt the impact immediately. Efforts were made to pivot using all available resources, but we were unable to regain traction post-covid.
It was with great sadness that the Membership voted for the Association to cease operations as of May 1, 2023.
This new website was supposed to be rolled out the year of our 40th anniversary. It now acts as a legacy website where pictures and newsletters from the history of the association can be found and enjoyed by former members. We hope it brings back some delightful memories.
The Board of Directors wishes to thank all those who supported CHMSE and its Members over the years.
