About National Conference

As we continue our journey through unprecedented times, it reminds us more of the importance of networking and learning from each other. Your 2021 National Conference Task Force will continue to plan for an event that will be very different than ever before. However, what will remain the same are the opportunities for education, networking, information exchange, benchmarking, recognition, food innovation, and volunteerism. We will do it in a way it will be more effective and meet the need of today's environment. If you are curious about the change and excited about the new opportunities, this will be your conference.
Join us in Cleveland to Awaken Your Curiosity!
