CHRIE FutureFund™ Thanks ICHRIE Members

CHRIE FutureFund™ Thanks ICHRIE Members

CHRIE FutureFund™ had a very successful Annual Conference in Phoenix and thank all ICHRIE members who supported CHRIE FutureFund™ initiatives.  The leadership of co-chairs Misty Johanson and Carl Winston resulted in the support of five (5) doctoral students attending the Annual Conference as winners of the inaugural Dissertation Competition, and four (4) Best Paper Winners from the Graduate Conference held last January. The return of the highly anticipated Duck Race drew a raucous crowd around the Lazy River at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa and raised just shy of $2,000.  The annual 50-50 Raffle raised a record $4,060. Along with the $4,000 donation to support the Grad Conference Best Paper Winners, your Future Fund raised approximately $10,000 to date in 2023. This achievement would not be possible without your support.
The CHRIE FutureFund™ has identified support for graduate education and the support of graduate students as a primary objective. Graduate students are the future professoriate, so supporting our future helps ensure member institutions have qualified, talented individuals on their teams, and these future faculty will become leaders within their respective programs and ICHRIE. Over the next several weeks we will introduce you to the individual doctoral students we supported this year.  Each has a wonderful story to tell, and each will be a terrific addition to any hospitality program. For now, we share the work for which each won their respective award.

Barbara Atanga & Lavi Peng – Customer misbehavior: The joint impact of a symbolic recovery strategy and cultural tightness-looseness on observing customers’ recovery satisfaction (along with supervising professor Anna Mattila) The Pennsylvania State University.

ICHRIE & Future Fund Support Graduate Students Research

For many years, ICHRIE and its CHRIE FutureFund™ had supported Best Paper winners from the Graduate Education & Graduate Student Research Conference in Hospitality & Tourism by awarding complimentary registration to the ICHRIE Annual Conference to each student winner.  During Future Fund Committee meetings held in fall 2022, co-chairs Misty Johansen and Carl Winston encouraged committee members to think bigger in terms of Future Fund impact. At its December meeting, committee members voted unanimously to approve awarding each student Best Paper winner from the Graduate Conference with a $1,000 award voucher. The award voucher provided complimentary registration for the 2023 ICHRIE Annual Summer Conference in Phoenix, as well as allowing the respective winner to choose among a complimentary one-year ICHRIE membership, reimbursement of lodging in the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa during conference, or reimbursement of airfare to/from Phoenix, with total award maximum of $1,000.
