The HSMAI is looking for a host venue for our Annual Awards Gala. This Gala is one of our chapter’s most popular events, honoring our leaders, past presidents and volunteers, installing our 2024 Board of Directors and celebrating our successes with members, their co-workers, bosses and guests. After taking a two-year hiatus, we look forward to opportunity to celebrate a very successful year at your venue this December.
