We are the Southern California Desert Chapter of the HFTP (Hospitality Financial & Technology Professionals).
The Desert Chapter includes cities within the Coachella Valley that include but are not limited to Rancho Mirage, Palm Springs, Cathedral City, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, Bermuda Dunes, and La Quinta.
The Chapter holds monthly dinner meetings during the months of October through May, and has other social events such as an annual golf tournament in June.
Dinner meetings are usually held at 'members' hotel and country clubs. A typical meeting begins at 5:45 p.m. with a cocktail reception, followed by a guest speaker and dinner. Speakers primarily focus on accounting, technology, hospitality-related topics or special interest to the desert community.
Visitors and guests are always welcome.
