Membership Application & Fees
CHART Membership is open to individuals employed by restaurant, foodservice, and lodging operators and have the responsibility to create, implement or oversee programs for education, training and developing human resources. Members must be able to attend conferences and be willing to participate and share information with other HR/Training professionals.
Membership is annual based on the month you joined. The cost is $295 to join, and renewal each year is $195. Individual memberships belong to the member.
COVID-19 Membership Access Program
To support hospitality trainers during this crisis, CHART initiated a Membership Access Program that provides members a pay-what-you-can renewal and free membership for new members.
Here is how the program will work:
- Hospitality trainers who wish to join CHART, including those who may have been recently furloughed, or laid off, may join for free from now through May 31, 2020
- Current CHART members renewing through July 31, 2020 will be given the opportunity to renew and pay whatever they can to keep their membership active
We recognize you are at the forefront of helping the hospitality industry get back on its feet and get employees ready to serve guests again in the coming weeks. CHART wants to help as many hospitality trainers as possible gain immediate access to the tools, resources, and network that they desperately need right now.
Companies may purchase a company membership if they have 5 or more members.
Companies can purchase 5 memberships for $1,000. No new member fee is due, so company saves $500 in the first year, and if a member leaves the company or gets promoted, the company can replace them with a new trainer without incurring new member fees.
Companies can purchase 10 memberships for $1500. No new member fee is due, saving significantly on the first year and on renewals, and if a member leaves the company or gets promoted, the company can replace them with a new trainer without incurring new member fees.
Membership stays with the company, not the member.
For companies that have existing members, they can merge those into the company membership. To inquire about company memberships, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
