As we approach the holiday season, I would like to call on each of you to reflect on the blessings we as Caterers, Event Planners, Chefs, and Servers have received from our industry.

As professionals, it is a privilege and our responsibility to pass along our good fortune, knowledge, expertise and support to those coming up the ranks who in turn will continue to help our industry become more professional and accomplished.

Please take a moment to reflect and contribute to your Educational Foundation which in turn grants scholarships for continuing education in our profession.
