Chairperson, National Accommodation of South Africa (NAA)
My name is Rosemarie van Staden, owner of a 5 star Boutique Guest House in the east of Pretoria called The Angels Place Boutique Guest House. I am the newly elected chairperson for the National Accommodation Association of South Africa (NAA-SA). I have been involved in the NAA-SA for quite a few years now and for the past 2 years I filled the position of their Vice chairperson (Inland). We are the united voice of the smaller accommodation sector. I am passionate about Tourism, travelling and interacting with different people. The Rosebank Region Accommodation Association asked me to be their chairperson in 2016 and it is a task I thoroughly enjoy!

Soon after starting my own guest house in 2010 I joined GATE (The Guest House Association of Tshwane/East) because I realized how important it is to be part of associations within the hospitality sector. My passion for tourism ignited and I was elected as the chairperson for the association. Thereafter I became a board member of the Tshwane Tourism Association (TTA) and I was responsible for their Guest House Chapter.

I would like to make a difference for all owners of smaller establishments during my term as chairperson for the National Accommodation Association of South Africa and my objective is to be a true ambassador and trusted representative for the different stakeholders within the Tourism Industry.

Yours in hospitality,
Rosemarie van Staden
