Each quarter CHATA focuses on a different personal quality a person has that brings out the best in them while working in the hospitality/tourism industry. The focus of this quarter is perseverance.

According to President & CEO, Mr. Miles Mercera, “Perseverance is a very important character trait for you to be successful in life.
