CHS Germany Membership
You are eligible to join if you are a Cornell University Hotel School
undergraduate or graduate degree holder or have attended at least one course of the Professional Development Program. At present we do not collect any dues and membership in the local chapter is free of charge. However, we strongly recommend membership in the international Cornel Hotel Society, where your dues help subsidize events, support various scholarship funds and community service projects, as well as maintain our infrastructure and support communication with alumni.

If you have attended at least six courses of the Professional Development Program, you are eligable to become a full member by paying your dues now online, just a click away.

Do it for yourself, your community and the school!

Our organization is not just about using alumni donations to facilitate past, present, and future relationships with Cornellians. It is also about giving back to the country and Cornell. CHS Germany is also involved in community service and fundraising for charitable events.
