Caribbean: Hotelier Patricia Affonso-Dass is the new president-elect of the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA).

The group general manager at Ocean Hotels in Barbados, Affonso-Dass was elected to the role at the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association's AGM, held alongside the Caribbean Hospitality Industry Exchange Forum (CHIEF) and Taste of the Caribbean at the Hyatt Regency in Miami.

Affonso-Dass, a graduate of Florida International University's School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, serves as president-elect for the next year before taking over the presidency of the travel trade association next summer from current incumbent Karolin Troubetzkoy, executive director of the Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet resorts in St. Lucia.

Affonso-Dass said: "I am thankful for the vote of confidence from our members and look forward to serving CHTA with distinction and excellence, both as president-elect and president in the years ahead."

Troubetzkoy said "We have benefited from Patricia's talents on our board of directors, and are proud to have an exceptional woman from the region lead our association into the future."
