Make plans now to be in Oklahoma City on November 7 for the annual Hirst Hospitality Awards. Help us recognize and honor the hardworking employees in the foodservice industry; there's nothing like the value of a good staff!
Members of the ORA will come together for Hospitality Day at the Capitol, where we will spend time speaking to legislators about issues facing our industry, and then culminate in a fabulous reception with more than 600 members and legislators at the Chevy Bricktown Events Center.
The ORA Academy is a new initiative for 2016! The goal of the Academy is to offer continuing education and professional development to particular demographics of ORA’s membership. In 2016 we’ll focus on Culinary education via four 1/2 day sessions held quarterly. At the end of the year, if a student has attended all 4 sessions, they will be awarded an ORA Academy “Certificate of Knowledge” and be recognized in The Restaurateur magazine.
Are you familiar with the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation’s (NRAEF) industry awards? Each year, winners are selected for these awards and we think YOU, as an ORA member, should be one of them!
