New Year 2017 Greetings from Northumberland Branch President


Dear Northumberland CAFP members,

This year we are gearing towards improving and enhancing our clients’ experience in the food industry.

We know you are working hard and so last year we established a new service for professional members to help leverage our CAFP website. Technology is expanding and we want you to stay ahead of the game*.

For our students the bursary deadlines are near, make sure to seek references and have your packages well ahead of time. We encourage as many students as possible to apply and also to attend the National Conference this year which will be held in Niagara. The conference is an amazing opportunity for students to mingle and learn the many aspects of foodservice and why it is the best service industry in the world.

Some highlights from last year include

  • Student and professional members’ educational seminar at StFX with amazing guest speakers, thank you Morgan, Shelby and your team for organizing this
  • National President Andrea Gillespie’s visit hosted by Northumberland Professional members thank you all for your efforts

I wish to remind our students and Northumberland professional members that we welcome new members at any time, please be great ambassadors in promoting the food industry and enriching the experience of our beloved clients. Please feel free to contact any of our members to find out about our next get together!

Good luck to everyone in 2017,

Jennifer Thibeau

Northumberland Branch President
