Food & Culinary Professionals

We are pleased to announce that our FNCE® events are planned and ready for this year, and we think you’ll agree that each one is going to be a not to miss opportunity to enjoy a great food city and networking with the amazing mix of members and leaders that make up FCP.

Chicago offers such a rich experience in terms of food and nutrition, from unique restaurants to supermarkets with multiple locations to urban agriculture, all with a nod to food safety, of course, so no matter which subgroup is your favorite or you are taking advantage of all  four, which your membership includes, we’ve got you covered.  Since it’s my home base, it was important to find places that perhaps you couldn’t find on your own. If you sign up for the hands-on dinner at the Merchandise Mart on the river, take advantage of the River Walk to see Chicago in a whole new light.  If Saturday morning’s food tour is more your thing, you’ll be walking around a beautiful section of the city experiencing places you may not have come across on your own. And lastly, the networking event on Sunday is right on Michigan Avenue in the Chicago Cultural Center, home to the world’s largest Tiffany Dome and housing music and art shows, gorgeous architecture, and of course, FCP-style attention to the menu.

Once the sessions start, you won’t want to miss the collaboration between FCP and DBC DPG on session 328: Triggering Change in Patients and Clients:  Insights from Behavioral Science, Room: 190 AB on Monday, October 23, 2017 from 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM.  CEU Credits: 1.5, Level 2 – Intermediate

Also, be sure to check out the “culinary coolness” at the pre FNCE® workshop that FCP is involved in thanks to one of our members: Session 487: FNCE Iron Chef: The RDN Culinary Battle Royale” (separate fee) Saturday, October 21 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. (includes bussing to and from the event) CEU credits: 3, Level 1

If you aren’t attending FNCE®, you can still be part of the FCP conversation! Check out all the subgroup resource pages on our website, view previous webinars (CPEU available for a year!), and follow us in social (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), and more.
