More than 140 club professionals traveled to Nashville, Tennessee last week to attend the second annual HFTP Club Summit. The event was held March 11-12, 2019 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Nashville Downtown. The Club Summit offers two days of advanced-level education specific to the club segment of the hospitality industry addressing strategies, trends and engagement.

This year, the educational program explored club governance and effective leadership strategies, employee engagement, key performance indicators, capital planning, audit best practices, club management software reengineering/replacement and more. Attendees enjoyed several opportunities for networking with one another and visiting with event sponsors offering the latest products and services relevant to today's club. Those with certification requirements were able to earn up to 12 hours of continuing education by attending education sessions.

The feedback from this year's attendees has been very positive. See what they have had to say:

  • "This was one of the best conferences I have attended. Having all of the sessions focused on clubs ensured that the topics would be relevant to me."
  • "If you have a question or a problem in your career at a club, bring it to HFTP's Club Summit. There will be someone there that has faced it and can offer a solution."
  • "I think the one-on-one [interaction] is crucial, especially if you do not have that locally."
  • "Club Summit is a tightly-focused educational program that delivered 100 percent relevant material and brought together colleagues in a setting that maximized the opportunity for information-sharing."
