Food & Culinary Professionals


Happy 2017!  I hope that you had a wonderful holiday season and wrap-up of 2016.  I’m really excited for this new year for so many reasons, but especially because FCP is offering delicious and enriching adventures and opportunities for our members. 

What are your goals for 2017?  Your food and culinary peers are here to help you be a stronger professional and to reach those goals.  I encourage you to connect with your FCP colleagues and take advantage of the numerous benefits that we offer, including webinars, the March 2-4 Culinary Workshop (see next paragraph!), our supermarket, food safety, restaurant & hospitality and agriculture subgroups and electronic mailing lists, book club, mentor program and more. 

Registration is now open for FCP’s 2017 Culinary Workshop, March 2-4! 
We hope you can join us for this three-day event in the Napa Valley where we will explore food, nutrition and culinary mastery. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to expand your culinary knowledge, skills and competencies; network with colleagues from across the country; and earn valuable Continuing Professional Education Units.  Learn more and register here.

Get ready to vote!  The Academy elections will run from February 1 – 22.  It’s not too early to start reading up on the FCP candidates, as well as  national candidates, especially the FCP members who are on the ballot.  Every vote counts, so I hope that you will take action next month.
I’d love to hear about your goals for 2017, and how FCP can help you achieve them.  Let us know via twitter @FCPDPG, Instagram at fcpdpg and on our Facebook page.

Here’s to a happy and delicious 2017,


Sheila Weiss, RDN, LD, FAND
2016-2017 FCP Chair
