Share Conference Highlights with your leadership

Send highlights of your conference attendance and the value you got to your administration and then send them the justification letter to line-up your 2024 attendance below. We’ve gotten you started with three key takeaways from all our sessions. We will be emailing a larger recap for your use in the coming two weeks and posting it here. 

Operators - Budget Your 2024 Attendance Now!

The 2024 conference will take place August 23-25, 2024 in San Antonio, Texas at the JW Marriott San Antonio in the Hill Country. Save the date and start budgeting now! Plan for yourself and your team – especially those looking to jump into leadership roles. 

Download our attendance justification template letter now and submit it for you AND your staff today so you don’t have to get the budget approved later. Attendance isn’t just a “nice to have” it’s a “must have” for personal and professional growth, sourcing new products and services to elevate your operation, helping your team succeed, retaining certifications, building a network, and so much more. It’s more than just a conference. 

AHF works to provide as many scholarships as possible. Most scholarships provide about $525 towards your conference registration. Other ways to attend and save include applying to compete in the culinary competition (if selected), applying for a national award (if selected), and utilizing Real Rewards Cafe Point (RRC) to cover all or part of your registration fee. Some AHF Chapters also provide additional scholarships and funding to attend the national conference.
