CIC Hospitality Department Head Patricia Agnew and Hospitality Instructor Paul Teehan attend Regional Fall 2011 Southeast Federation meeting for CHRIE

The Regional Fall 2011 Southeast Federation meeting for CHRIE (Council on Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Education) is held once annually as an opportunity for members to present abstracts for research projects conducted during the year and to conduct the annual business of the SECHRIE membership group. This year’s meeting was held on the campus of Tuskegee University, private, coeducational, historically black institution of higher education in Tuskegee, Alabama.

Presentations included studies in perceptions of green practices in a university foodservice operation; sustainability training and practices for lodging operations; critical success factors in wine tourism; training needs of bed and breakfast operators; and correlations between convention and visitor’s bureau investors and inventory statistics, among others. The conference concluded with an informative tour of the Tuskegee University campus.
