Bill Pallett’s Legacy: Supporting the Next Generation of Tourism Leaders

Tourism HR Canada previously announced with great sadness that Bill Pallett, tourism champion, HR leader, and Past Chairperson of our Board of Directors, passed away at the end of December.

Bill was a graduate and strong supporter of Ryerson University. He was committed to the ongoing development of the school and volunteered supporting the Alumni Association and the Advisory Board. He was the recipient of the 2017 HTM Industry Award in recognition for his dedication to the school.
