o If you do not wish to restart your membership, please let me know ASAP so I can ensure your membership dues/dates are not restarted
o All memberships will be prorated based on your previous expiration date and the Young Center closure duration. We will honor all punch passes, week passes, and certificates. Please, ensure you have your parking passes visible inside your vehicles.
o Prorate example #1: If member had an annual membership

 Add prorated amount of days to their membership end date
 For example: If end-date was April 10th, take 16 days from March and 10 days from April for a total of 26 days, and add it to June, so the new end-date would be June 26th.

Thank you again for your patience during this time; we appreciate your attention to these details and are excited to see all of you again. And as always, please practice safe social-distancing to ensure safety for all.

The Lodging Management Class Experience
Special Announcement:
THM 320 Lodging Management course offered this fall will no longer be an online/independent study class, instead, we are changing it to be an applied learning, face to face course that will be taught every Thursday from 1:00 – 4:00 pm, starting Thursday, August 27, 2020. The purpose of a 3-hour block is to allow enough time to do site visits throughout the Black Hills region. Our goal is to break it up as 1/3 Site Visits, 1/3 Guest Speakers and 1/3 Instructional Application = 100% engaging!

It will be an awesome opportunity to explore an industry that is one of our region’s leading economic drivers. We are currently developing the 16-week fall class schedule for Lodging Management. On the first day students will know where and who we will meet with each week for the duration of the class.

OPEN TO ALL MAJORS: Many of you have already registered for fall, but if this class sounds exciting to you, there is still time to register for this course. For those of you that have yet to register, please consider this class, I promise you, it will be an incredible learning experience. There are 6 slots left for the class!

Please reach out to Dana Weber (dana.weber@bhsu.edu) or Dr. Jeff Wehrung (jeff.wehrung@bhsu.edu) if you have questions about registering for this class.
