2020 ACF Central Region Chapter of the Year!
Under the outstanding leadership of President Jeff Duval, our chapter was recognized as the American Culinary Federation's Central Region Chapter of the year.

Many thanks to Chef Golda Ewalt for preparing the presentation and submitting it to the National Office!
As a proud member of the American Culinary Federation, I pledge to share my professional knowledge and skill with all culinarians. I will place honor, fairness, cooperation and consideration first when dealing with my colleagues. I will keep all comments professional and respectful when dealing with my colleagues. I will protect all members from the use of unfair means, unnecessary risks and unethical behavior when used against them for another’s personal gain. I will support the success, growth, and future of my colleagues and this great federation.
