“From a speaker’s perspective, I saw the love of learning in the eyes of the audience at the 2007 Assistant Controllers Conference,” said HFTP Global Immediate Past President Agnes DeFranco, Ed.D., CHAE, professor and assistant vice president for undergraduate studies at the University of Houston and speaker at the 2007 Assistant Controllers Conference. “These folks are the next leaders in our workplace, and the next leaders of HFTP.”

The conference offers general sessions and two tracks - one for hotels and one for clubs.
