The Grenada Hotel and Tourism Association’s (GHTA) Annual General Meeting is quickly approaching. The GHTA hosts its Annual General Meeting annually, however due to Covid-19, the meeting had to be delayed. The meeting is now scheduled to be held virtually on Thursday, 21 January 2021 via Zoom.
Through the use of technology, GHTA is able to host its largest Membership Meeting online, where members can join from the comfort and convenience of their homes. The AGM will be preceded by an overview of GHTA’s newly revised bylaws where members can voice their questions and concerns.
