Board of Directors

The Board is comprised of IACP members elected by our general membership, as well as a non-voting representative from the Board of The Culinary Trust, IACP's philanthropic foundation. Directors serve two-year terms unless they have been elected by the Board to serve as one of four officers: Secretary-Treasurer, President, President-Elect, and Immediate Past President. The Board is primarily responsible for setting IACP strategy, budgeting, and ensuring that plans for achieving the organization's strategic and financial goals are in place. To chart progress toward these objectives, the Board meets monthly with Heaquarters staff.

Board members offer guidance and support to the volunteer Chairs and members of the Interest Sections groups. While Board members serve on a volunteer basis, they are at your disposal year-round to help you make the most of your membership. Please do not hesitate to forward them questions, comments, or feedback at any time.
