What is the CCAC?
As your President of the CCAC. I want thank you for your continued membership and faith in me to direct our organization. We have made some good strides in keeping our organization fresh. Our Social Media Pages have grown drastically over the last year to over 150 friends on Facebook & Twitter and over 450 likes. We have had several educational events with over 60 Chefs & Students turning out that also enjoyed Dinner & CEH points! We are working to complete the Jr. Membership Scholarship Fund with Chef Higgins who has driven this process and arranged to have it partially funded. We will work to complete the application process soon.
Today I was allowed to participate in Career day at one of the local elementary schools. It reminded me of when I use to do this in the past. What fun it is to help guide young minds in the areas of our arts and sciences. I encourage you all to call to see how you can help impact our communities in this matter. If you are having trouble please let me know I may know someone in your area who does this for the local schools.
We are looking to chefs to host an upcoming Dinner please contact me if you are interested. My contact info is on the Board Page of the CCAC website. To gain points for your AAC application and recertification you must be active in the association. So be active, it’s your organization. If you need help let me know and I will help
