As a smaller hotel, I appreciate the network of information the Hotel Council provides. Not only are the seminars filled with relevant topics, but the members are always willing to share ideas and experiences.

We became a member of The Hotel Council of San Francisco in September of 2018 and attended the Human Resources Seminar in October. We learned about several compliance rules from top-notch speakers that are influential during the entire employee journey. Sparkwork Software automates these compliance rules inside organizations so that these risks can be avoided. The attendees of the seminar were in the right spirit to network, help and learn from each other! We are grateful to be a part of the Hotel Council.
