Regional Training Forums
CHART's Regional Training Forums (RTFs) ramp up the learning and networking in between face time at conferences. Held in convenient locations across the country, RTFs are a great way for you to build relationships with your fellow training and HR professionals and learn tried and true best practices. Find the one closest to you today! Most of the RTFs are free and nonmembers are welcome as long as they are employed by a restaurant, foodservice, or lodging company and involved in training, so members are welcome to bring others from their company who can benefit from and contribute to the meetings. We currently hold CHART Regional Training Forums in 27 cities nationwide. If you do not see your city listed below and wish to host a meeting in your location, email the CHART office for details on how to get started.
