Aloha HLTA Members!
The HLTA Engineers Advisory Council provides a forum for the professional development of engineers in the hospitality industry. 2015 brought about some very exciting changes with the implementation of a new website, webcasting of our meetings and our first scholarship golf tournament.
We expect to see the value of the Engineers Council grow in 2016. We have obtained speaker commitments from many organizations and each of them is ready to provide information on topics of interest to the membership. Participants will have access to the most up to date trends, concerns, health and safety information, latest energy technologies available and more.
While we count on the support of the chief engineers, the council also believes it’s important to have a role in succession planning. With this in mind, we would like to include more of the up and coming assistant chiefs, managers, and supervisors into our membership. They will have an opportunity to participate in the sharing of ideas and best practices. In addition, the Engineers Advisory Council now welcomes members from the HLTA Allied membership.
Annual membership dues are only $150.00 per HLTA member lodging property and you may designate up to 5 engineers to represent your property. Dues for HLTA allied members are $150.00 and you may designate one (1) employee to represent your company. To join, simply fill out the attached membership form.
As a member of the Engineers Advisory Council, you will receive an EAC membership roster, have access to materials on our new website, and enjoy a networking breakfast at every meeting. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact:
Karen Wataru-Nakaoka at: (808) 923-0407 or
We look forward to your property/company being represented at our meetings.
Mahalo & Aloha,
Dennis C. Maher
