2013 November President’s Message

Greetings Chapter Members,

It’s really amazing how quickly this year has gone by.  We as a chapter have been very fortunate to have very loyal members who value the ACF. I have recently been involved with a group in Hillsborough County that are looking to get involved with the ACF. Of course I have opened our doors to them explaining who we are and how we are involved with the local communities within Tampa and their surroundings.  They have shared with me that they have an interest in joining our chapter and want to further invest in chef certification through ACF.


I would like to touch on about your own values as an ACF member, also becoming certified or recertify from where you are currently.  We have great education sessions at our chapter meetings led by Chef Eckert. CEH’s  are available at each of our meeting to help you on your way of obtaining some of the credit hours needed to recertify. Remember, should you have questions about certifications, please contact myself or go to the ACF web sight, certify@acfchefs.net, Contact Lisa Emmons Certification Administrator.


Be on the look out for another great meeting in December! It will be at the Clarion Hotel in Tampa being held on December 9th 2013. Chef Eddie Reinholtz will be hosting the meeting and it is going to be fun. We will be having a sandwich competition, featuring one of our newest members West Wind Provisions of Safety Harbor, who will be sponsoring this social event / meeting. Please follow our chapter web sight as more details become available.


I would like to close by wishing everyone a great holiday season, Keep Cooking!!


Thank you!
