Emerging Nations

SECSA CHRIE has become an international organization with members from across the Caribbean and Latin America.   At the same time, more and more hospitality and tourism faculty from emerging markets are searching to become a part of our international organization. The greatest challenge is the cost of their membership could equal a week’s salary and that makes it impossible for them to join our organization.

Emerging Nations Program Details:

  • The Special Individual level rate is US$25 for one full member.

  • The Emergent Premium level rate is US$105 for five (5) full members + 10 associate members.

  • All memberships under the program will receive digital access only. 

We are happy to offer the Emerging Nations Program for those members who are in one of the countries listed below.
