In Sierra Leone, Hotel Owners to Hold First Consultative Meeting

Hotel, Catering and Entertainment Employers Federation (HCEEF) will on Wednesday 15th September 2010 hold its first consultative meeting to brainstorm on a way forward for the federation at the Family Kingdom Hall, Aberdeen in Freetown.


Speaking to this Medium in an exclusive interview at his Kimbima Hotel Office, the Chairman Elect Mr. Tamba Alieu-Kokobay revealed that the decision for consultative meeting was to bring al;l stakeholders on board to add impetus to the running of the federation which he said had remained dormant for years.  He said members had been lethargic to participate in the affairs of the association since it was not duly registered. But we are now a registered entity so members have deemed it fit to bring the federation to the lime-light as a force to reckon with, the chairman furthered.


He said at the consultative conference, issues such as the official launching of the federation, nomenclature and the sustenance of the federation among others will be prime on the agenda, adding that the certificate of registration will also be presented at the forum. He in that regard called on stakeholders to make it a point of duty to attend that consultative meeting in person, not through proxies. We want to tell the general public that our 20 years of existence can bring meaning to development of hospitality in the country, he proffered, adding that those years were wasted because of lack of commitment by both the membership and the succeeding executives.


Mr. Kokobay also noted that they were prepared to live up to their responsibility in maintaining increased productivity for the general enhancement of the tourist industry geared towards sustainable economic growth. In furtherance of our objectives, the federation helps promote peace, social justice and democracy amongst its membership irrespective of nationality, color, or beliefs, he also stated, adding that through affiliations with other National and International Employers Federations, they would surely succeed in that.  He said as a federation they strive to raise and maintain funds for the relief of members during legitimate Trade Union disputes and/or in the case of harassment, victimization and other forms of commercial breaches from any quarters. He however, hastened to observe that their role as a federation was supervisory as a union, as they do not wholly interfere with the general business affairs of members establishments. The federation can assist or advice on request to ensure internal freedom, unity and diversity of expression in accordance with the tenets of the constitution, Mr. Alieu-Kokobay concluded.
