Welcome to the Hawaii Engineers Advisory Council Website

Aloha HLTA Members!

The HLTA Engineers Advisory Council provides a forum for the professional development of engineers in the hospitality industry. 2016 had a larger base of members with our allied members being allowed to join the council. This has brought more collaboration and more learning opportunities, while getting to know the Allied members who can provide additional services to our properties.

We expect to see the value of the Engineers Council grow even more in 2017. Participants will have access to the most up to date trends, concerns, health and safety information, latest energy technologies available, career opportunities, Scholarship opportunities 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 have also included 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.

Annual membership dues are only $150.00 per HLTA member lodging property and you may designate up to five (5) individuals 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 Click This Link.

As a member of the Engineers Advisory Council, you will receive an EAC membership roster, have access to materials on our new website (http://hawaiiengineersadvisory.com/), and enjoy a networking breakfast at every meeting. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact:
