Howdy, Hotel Members! This year our November/December issue of our newsletter will focus on your successful and not-so-successful environmental projects. So, please gather the information needed to write the story (or send to us at GHA to write the story), and send it in asap! Your experiences will help other green managers and properties make decisions on whether or not to proceed with particular green efforts. It's very important to share your success with other hoteliers. A less-than-successful project is just as important to share as a fully successful one.

Please include as many facts as you can--costs, vendor names, time spent, range of benefits, downsides, etc., so others can learn from your experience. Your property will also benefit from the exposure. There's a good chance we'll use your story in an e-mail broadcast to thousands of other hoteliers!

We'd love to have a green story on your property. Write your own story or chose from the ideas below for the direction of your story.
What aspect of your green program are you most proud?
What aspect of your green program saves the most money?
What aspect of your green program is commented on most by guests?

Please share those stories by e-mailing your story to within the next ten days. If you will put "green hotels" in the subject line of your e-mail, it will sail past our spam filter. We're revved and ready to see your success stories! All the other members are too! Please do send yours now or asap!
