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 15 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.
CHART Regional Training Forums Schedule

CHICAGO, IL | DATE TBD | 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM CST
From Pandemic to Pandemonium: The New Normal is NOT Normal!
This will be an IN-PERSON RTF!
We have so many questions and we need answers now!
- How can we get over this recruiting hurdle?
- What onboarding techniques will help retention?
- How do we deal with ever-shifting policies and procedures?
- What operational changes are here to stay?
- How does our training approach need to change?
We'll explore this and more in a dynamic and highly interactive RTF. We'll kick off the session with an update on the current landscape of the industry, then open it up to our panel for additional insights, and follow with a problem-solving Ask My Peers brainstorm.
