President's Letter

Welcome to the Los Angeles Chapter of Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals website. Our community has over 100 members from a variety of hospitality related enterprises in the greater Los Angeles area. We typically meet once a month on the third Thursday at one of the notable hotels or clubs in the area. Our host provides us with a fantastic dining experience at a great venue and shares details about their property while the guest speaker provides us with the latest information on various topics such as economic trends, legal issues, purchasing trends, and technology. Hospitality students also attend our events to seek career advice and to learn more about our profession. Your generous contributions to our numerous raffles and silent auction have enabled us to donate over $10,000 to the HFTP-LA scholarship fund at The Collins College of Hospitality Management at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.

This year is already off to a great start with presentations that educate, engage, and enlighten us. We have learned about the various hotel markets from Bruce Baltin in September, the tourism trends from several speakers at the Southern California Visitor Industry Conference in October, and creative measurable marketing ideas from Bob Pritchard in November. Our annual holiday event in December provided us with additional opportunities to network and collaborate with other hospitality professionals and industry associations.

The invaluable, experienced HFTP-LA board members, that serve on the leadership team, and I will continue to seek out great speakers and host properties. Your input and collaboration is greatly appreciated as we schedule our events for 2014. This is our organization: let's work together to create positive changes in our colleagues, our properties, and ourselves.

I found this quote and I thought it was appropriate for us: "Unity is strength . . . when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved." By Mattie Stepanek
