PCH is Leading the Way to Orlando for the CHPA National Conference

Monday, January 12th, 2015

CHPA OrlandoEach year in February, hundreds of corporate housing professionals gather together at the Corporate Housing Providers Association (CHPA) National Conference to network, discuss hot-button issues effecting our industry, and to learn best practices from industry peers. This year’s conference will be in Orlando, and Preferred Corporate Housing is leading the way!

Michelle Velasquez, PCH’s Director of Client Services, has led the Program Task Force Committee for the past twelve months to conceptualize and arrange all the educational components of this year’s conference. But before the conference officially begins, the 2015 Board of Directors meeting will take place where Samantha Elliott, PCH President, will begin her appointment as the 2015 Executive Board President of CHPA.

Michelle and Samantha have also been asked to lead sessions later in the week. Michelle will share her expertise on supply-chain management, ensuring brand consistency across service locations and industry best practices on quality assurance measures. Samantha will lead one of the conference’s most-popular sessions, the Relocation Industry Panel, where she will act as the facilitator amongst experts from some of the worlds largest relocation management companies.

Preferred Corporate Housing is honored to be participating and leading this event from the country’s only trade organization dedicated to the success and growth of the corporate housing industry, CHPA.

20152014 was amazing for PCH, and coming off such a great year, we are committed to keeping the momentum going throughout 2015. In fact, this year has already kicked off with several great things for Preferred Corporate Housing. We have already won our first large group mobilization bid for 2015, a $130k contract with the US Coast Guard that began during the first week of the new year. Our team members have already completed 2 new certification courses and contributed 5 continuing education credit hours towards our goal of 100 per year. And our webinar series on temporary housing trends has already been approved for Certified Relocation Professional (CRP) credit issued by the Worldwide Employee Relocation Council…and we are only 11 days into the new year! We are just getting warmed up!

We have several new program launches in store for 2015 that will allow us to service more clients in more locations, including international destinations, and we are expanding our portfolio of service inclusions for our clients. We are excited about adding our new, unique approach to the exceptional temporary housing services we already offer in more than 42,000 locations, and for the new opportunities these added benefits will bring for PCH and our clients.

So keep your eyes peeled and your ears open because Preferred Corporate Housing has lots in store for 2015, and you won’t want to miss any of it!
