A Message from the Chapter President
I would like to wish everyone Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! In this busy time of year I would like to reflect on how much our Chapter has achieved over the last two years. We have been able to grow our membership, there is true excitement in the air as we have many students from ACIT and ACCC joining us as we grow we must remember that they are our future. To all of our Professional Chefs please continue to mentor and guide these young Culinarians in their efforts to gain experience and knowledge. It is very gratifying to be able to see these students working side by side with the Chefs from our Chapter sharing their knowledge, thank you all for your mentorship of these students. The annual “Serving those that have served us” was a tremendous success in November. What a huge amount of support we received from Chefs, students, volunteers, vendors, purveyors, without your help and support we could not do this. The Veterans enjoyed every moment and are already looking forward to next years Brunch. I am very proud to say that we have a Culinary Team and a Knowledge Bowl Team that will compete at Chef Connect Atlantic City 2019 , we wish them well. Our community outreach continues on the local, state, and national levels. We will be the very first Host Chapter during Chef Connect Atlantic City 2019 to hold a Community Outreach on a Conference level at the Salvation Army in Atlantic City which will be held on February 24,2019 . For the fourth year in a row our Chapter will also be spearheading the National Community Outreach during the ACF National Convention in Orlando, Florida. If you have not signed up yet for the Chef Connect Conference in Atlantic City I encourage you to do so. It will be an outstanding event. We as a board have been working hard on upcoming events which will prove to be very busy but exciting times for our Chapter. Elections will be on December 11 2018, during our annual Christmas Party, we will be collecting Toys for Tots to give out to the local hospitals and homeless shelters. Installation of the board will be in January. February 24 to 26,2019 will be Chef Connect. As the Conference come to an end on February 28,2019 the Captains Table will take place for the benefit of the South Jersey Food Bank. Our annual Presidents Charity Schlorship Ball will be held on March 31,2019 at Hard Rock Atlantic City, NJ beginning at 5 pm. Room blocks are set aside at $49 plus tax for the night of the Ball. We have also begun work on our annual Chefs at the Shore! So as you can see we continue to be a viral, strong and relevant Chapter within the ACF and I continue to be very humbled and honored to serve as your Chapter President .
May we all keep Chef Chris Neary’s family in our thoughts prayers. Chef Neary was a tremendous asset to the ACF and he will be greatly missed.as we move forward into theNew Year please don’t hesitate to reach out with your thoughts, ideas,and suggestions, all are welcome.
