ACF Chefs Las Vegas Chapter

President's Message

Our next general meeting is on Tuesday, October 24th. The event will be held at Affinity Group Elite, 8705 Lindell Road Las Vegas NV 89139. Chef Poltrock has arranged for two presentations to open the meeting at 6.00 pm so I envision a fully packed session.

At this meeting we will be closing the slate of candidates for the upcoming election, Chef Claude Lambertz (our regular election chair), will be accepting your final nominations from the floor for all the Officers and three open Board seats. View the nominees.

All nominees are invited to speak at the November meeting on the 28th, so now is a good time to check your personal mailing address with the ACF National Office as election ballots will be sent via US mail to all eligible voters to the address that is on their record.

From the nominees listed-to-date, I feel that we will have a strong leadership team that will be of great benefit for everyone over the next two years.

A very special note; the board has chosen to adjust our annual toy drive for Chefs for Kids this year so as to give their volunteers sufficient time to sort and wrap the gifts prior to distribution at Shade Tree.

Please view the Toy/Gift criteria for those wishing to participate. We will be accepting Toys at both the October and November General Meetings.

With this change we are holding the Holiday Celebration Brunch on Sunday, January 7th, giving those who wish, the opportunity to assist at Shade Tree on Christmas Eve.

Looking forward to seeing all of you soon!
