Workgroups

HTNG workgroups are comprised of groups of people who meet regularly to solve industry challenges. 

When problems are identified, a workgroup is created to find a solution through Board-approved charters. Workgroup members collaborate to solve the problem and create an end deliverable. At any given point in time, HTNG has 10-20 workgroups in progress.

In addition to solving industry challenges, workgroups provide excellent opportunity for interaction between members to help form customer, supplier and partner relationships.


A typical workgroup will: 

  • Include hospitality members, consultants & industry partners from different companies.
  • Meet weekly or bi-weekly via web conference.
  • Meet periodically face-to-face at HTNG events.

Workgroups have a lifespan of 6-12 months and will advance through the following phases:

  • Potential Workgroups: An idea put forth by industry stakeholders for a possible workgroup.
  • Active Workgroups: A group of people who are regularly meeting on a specific topic. These workgroups are solving the industry problems as set forth in their board-approved Charter, or are actively writing their Charter document.
  • Completed Workgroups: A workgroup that has completed deliverables, and may be reconvened for updates in the future.
