Call for Nominations

The Hotel Association of North Texas' nominating committee will open nominations for board members on December 26th.

The Hotel Association of North Texas (HANTX) will start accepting nominations for its 2023 board of directors at the end of December. Board members serve a two-year term, starting April 1, and are eligible for re-election provided they are engaged and attend meetings regularly. Nominations must be received by Friday, January 27, 2023.

All submitted nominations are reviewed by the nominating committee, and successful candidates are contacted by the committee to be considered for approval to be on the slate by the full board.  A final vote will take place at the Annual Meeting of the organization in March.  The selection of the best candidates is driven by the desire to ensure that the board is composed of diverse, engaged members who bring a range of essential skills and experiences and reflect the organization’s mission.
