Each one, reach one……

Introducing our PLUS ONE Program

A Mentor is defined as someone who guides another to greater success.

For some time now, our junior chapter has had increased membership numbers yet decreasing participation. There are many great things happening in our chapter. But to become even greater, we need to  energize our existing junior members to become more active, thus our new PLUS ONE mentoring program.

Here’s how it works. We have simply divided our membership rolls into two separate lists - one of professional members and another of junior members. We have  assigned each professional member to a junior member. We will now encourage each professional member to 1) become more engaged with the chapter, and 2) to reach out to their assigned junior member get to know them. Find out where they go to school, where they work, where they live, and what it would take to get them to our next meeting or function.

Then as each professional and junior member gains momentum by coming to more meetings, each can introduce themself and their mentee/mentor to others.  Networking is the heart and soul of our ACF chapter. When our members are more connected, we will be more effective as an organization as well as help grow each of our members. Every member has something to offer.

When YOU give, you receive double the benefits in return. However, if you don't contribute, you can't get nearly the value out of your membership. Make the most of your membership - be more active AND take part in this important mentoring program.

Change in Credit Card Processing Procedures

The Chefs de Cuisine website will no longer accept credit card payments for meetings and special events, as the processing fees used by the website processing provider were climbing. However, we will continue to accept credit card payments at the door for each event, using a moble card reader that has lower processing fees. For all future events, please bring your payment (credit card, cash, or check) with you to the event. Thank you for your understanding.

Find Us on Facebook Logo

Well, we finally did it. Chefs de Cuisine is now on Facebook - amazingly before the decade was over !!! While this site will remain as our official website for news and event information, Facebook will give us an additional avenue for sharing information wih our members. Additional, Facebook is a much better  site for sharing photos. So though we will continue to post a few photos on this website, whole series of photos in photo albums will be available on Facebook.

So, Follow us on Facebook!
