But earlier this week, I had a long day that was different.
It was a long day filled with excitement, energy and spectacular insight from people who have a passion to represent HFTP to the global membership and hospitality community.
Honestly, who wouldn’t want to represent an association that allows you continual hospitality education on so many levels, and can benefit you personally and professionally in so many ways?
Earlier this week was the first ever HFTP Train the Trainer Seminar held in Dallas, Texas. Led by a tremendous panel of instructors – we, as a collaborative group, learned how to effectively present the review for the CHAE (Certified Hospitality Accountant Executive) and CHTP (Certified Hospitality Technology Professional) exams to chapters and individuals who are interested in pursuing their HFTP certification.
Can I get an Amen?
Being a certification holder myself, I know the dedication required to study and test. As an added plus, there’s all the anxiety and pressure we put upon ourselves to achieve highly.
Each professional has their reasons for certification — some want personal achievement accolades, some desire to pursue/elevate their careers, some want to keep the jobs they have and others just like to show people they know what they’re talking about.
Whatever your reason, you now have at your disposal a TEAM of HFTP representatives that can assist your chapters to offer the CHAE and CHTP reviews — so utilize us.
If you currently serve on your local Chapter board – get out there! Let the membership know how valuable certification can be.
To be the best, you have to integrate and establish yourself with the best. Duh – that’s why I came to the HFTP Knowledge Exchange in Dallas, Texas this week.
Jessica Vint, CHAE, is regional controller for The Hotel Group in Edmonds, Wash. She is also a director on the HFTP Global Board.
