Central Federation

It's Been a Productive Month

This has been a productive month in the Central Federation.

First, a special thank you to our hospitality and tourism industry partners who attended the recent Illinois Chapter ICHRIE Hospitality Career Fair. 2015 was a record breaking year in terms of attendance by students and recruiters. In total, there were 137 recruiters from 70 different companies looking to fill internships as well as part-time and full-time jobs. To showcase themselves to these recruiters, the fair hosted 384 students from around the Central Federation and beyond.

Second, we have begun planning for our annual Alligator Hour this May. This event, which is held in Chicago during the National Restaurant Association show, is a great chance to connect with colleagues and friends. So we can ensure we have ample food and beverage for the event, the Central Federation board kindly requests that all attendees register at the following link:


Finally, the Central Federation is looking forward to the annual ICHRIE summer conference. This year, the event will be held from 29-31 July at the beautiful Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Florida. Just a short drive from the Orlando airport, the Rosen Shingle Creek boasts some amazing meeting and event space for our conference, an 18-hole championship golf course, state-of-the-art spa and fitness facilities, and multiple dining options on property.

I look forward to seeing you in Chicago and Orlando later this year, and wish you continued success and happiness in 2015.
