Cornell Hotel Society-Chapter President's Handbook HANDLING GUEST SPEAKERS AT MEETINGS The Alumni Affairs Office and the Society leadership appreciate receiving an advance schedule of the planned activities of all CHS Chapters. With this schedule, they can plan and manage the schedules of CHS leadership and faculty from the Hotel School who may be available to visit Chapters. If the Alumni Office is aware of faculty, staff, or Society leader schedules far enough in advance, they will notify Chapters. The Chapters may decide if they are interested in adding an event or including the visitor on an existing event's program. There may be times when the Dean may be able to visit a Chapter. In this instance, the Chapter will be asked to assist with making arrangements for accommodations and transportation. The addition of a speaker from the Society leadership or from the School has been shown to result in a larger turnout and a higher level of interest in the function. Official representatives of the School should be given the opportunity to meet and address the gathering. Any CHS leadership or School representatives should be introduced to the attendees. Chapter events should be used to communicate to, and update, alumni on the happenings at the Hotel School and with the Cornell Hotel Society. The Alumni Office can provide PowerPoint presentations and updates about the School or in the Society. Communication is important for the program to be effective. Lead time is essential and close coordination with the School and Society officers must be accomplished to get the best results. The office of Alumni Affairs and those responsible for event management at the School will coordinate with the Chapter about the program, venue, audio-visual needs, and other arrangements to make the visitor program successful. FACULTY ROAD SHOW Great programming can enhance Cornell Hotel Society chapter events, and the Faculty Road Show is one way to do just that! Our talented faculty from all disciplines look forward to sharing their latest research or trends in their areas of expertise with alumni and their guests. Whether as a key note speaker or as part of a panel, engaging our faculty is another way to stay connected with the school. Please note, The Faculty Road Show is not intended to be a supplement for seminar or conference formats to the greater industry or general public where speaker fees would ordinarily apply. In order to secure a faculty member for an event, please see detailed procedures: Page | 48
