Connect ยป Interest Sections

Interest Sections

Our 11 interest sections take networking to the next level by making it easier for you to share expertise and resources with like-minded members. From food policy and photography to culinary tourism and food journalism, there's an interest section for everyone. 

Section membership gives you access to targeted industry information and resources along with social media groups, quarterly newsletters, monthly Speaker Series to keep you up-to-date on the issues, ideas, and trends pertinent to your section.

There is no limit to the number of sections you can join – access to section content and events is one of the many benefits of IACP membership. Our section Chairs are always looking for help to keep their sections current with new programs and content, so please don't hesitate to volunteer. For more information about each section, its leadership, mission, and resources, click on the links below or contact the section Chair.
