HOTEL, VILLA & CONDO/TIMESHARE MEMBERSHIP


CHTA understands that operating a hotel, a villa or a condo/timeshare property is about far more than a comfortable night’s sleep for your guests. It is about Business Management, Advocacy and Marketing within multi-intra islands as well as International. Our association is about what happens behind the scenes – what will make your establishment run smoother, be more cost-effective, and grow your profits. CHTA members have inside access to the key players and resources that drive the lodging industry, and benefit from a network of likeminded executives. While we encourage the primary contact to be the general manager or property owner, our host of benefits transcends marketing, human resources, sales, food & beverage, and other departments. For this reason, we entitle the primary member to appoint other internal associates to also receive the full benefits of CHTA membership. This means that for one price, individuals can take advantage of all the events, educational resources, and communications we offer. Discounts are offered only to CHTA card members.
