The COVID-19 situation is especially troubling with significant consequences across all sectors of society. Aggressive
and preventative measures are being taken to protect our individual and collective health. This is an unprecedented
situation which requires many of us to adjust our normal practices.

The spread of COVID-19 is affecting every one of us. At NEWH, we are people first, and we do what we do with the
belief that we can change lives with scholarship, education and networking. We are all trying to adapt and respond
in our own way, and NEWH wants to continue to play a role in helping individuals and our industry emerge stronger.

The health and safety of each NEWH member, as well as our larger hospitality community, is of utmost importance
to us. After careful deliberation, and considering the information provided by the Centers for Disease Control and
the World Health Organization about the coronavirus (COVID-19), our recommended protocol is to reschedule all
NEWH events when possible over the next few months.

The NEWH Inc., leadership team and our Chapter/Region leaders are currently working to reschedule events that
are planned in the immediate future and will notify of any changes as soon as details are confirmed. Our goal is to
ensure safe and successful events for attendees, speakers and sponsors alike. We are taking into account that many
companies are implementing travel restrictions out of extreme caution for the safety of our community.

Our thoughts are with those who have been affected by this situation as it continues to unfold. We at NEWH, Inc.
appreciate your support and understanding and look forward to seeing you once the outbreak has sufficiently
subsided and your hands are washed 🙂
