November Newsletter

Dear Friends, 

November is a month to give thanks and appreciate what you have, those around you, and yourself.

This year, the CFCA’s 31st Gala celebration took place at the brand new Margaritaville Resort. We enjoyed a wonderful winter sunset followed by dinner, dancing, and fun among friends.

Congratulations to the recipients of the 2019 Central Florida Concierge Association awards! 

  • Concierge: Floyd Banfield from The Alfond Inn at Winter park
  • Concierge affiliate: Nidia Alameda with Disney Planning
  • Associate: Misty Melillo with Mobile Dental.

I’d like to wish all the best to Kristina Martel in her new venture. Kristina has been a longtime supporter and member of the CFCA who represented Blue Man Group for many years, and hosted us at Citywalk for a wonderful evening of food and entertainment. 

In my opinion, 2019 seems to have gone by in a flash. As we rapidly approach the end of the year, the holiday season in Orlando continues to flourish. With it, comes finding a balance between work, family, and play. These components of our lives can certainly pull us in all directions at once. It is important to remain grounded and look after our mental and physical health during this busy time. Those in hospitality are especially known to be magicians who believe we can accomplish anything and everything, and that no task in unattainable. However, we are only human. Always remember to take a moment for yourself and breathe.

We are looking forward to getting together again at STK Disney Springs in December. More details and invitations will come soon in our December Newsletter

On behalf of the CFCA family, enjoy a happy and safe holiday.

Your President,

Nekane Alvarez
