Earlier this year, the nominating committee — comprising past HFTP Global past presidents, advisory council chairs and chapter presidents — were tasked with picking the HFTP members that would replace the outgoing directors of the HFTP Global Board. After a long day of interviews, the nominating committee was able to narrow down their choices. Here is the official slate for the 2017–2018 HFTP Global Executive Committee and Board of Directors.

Executive Committee

  • HFTP Global Director Martha Mazzitelli, CHAE+, CHTP+, CFO at Bay Colony Shared Service
  • HFTP Global Director Justin Taillon, MBA, PhD, program manager of hospitality & tourism management at Highline College

In accordance with Article X, Section 3, of the bylaws, should the slate above remain uncontested, the HFTP Secretary will cast a single ballot at the HFTP Annual Business Meeting at the Annual Convention & Tradeshow in Championsgate, Florida USA. The Secretary will then declare the mentioned individuals as duly elected.
