I came across the FCSP website and it instantly grabbed my attention and made me want to become a member. On top of that, everyone was so welcoming and kind at my first meeting. I am so thankful I found FCSP and met this wonderful group!

Joining FCSP is a great way to meet to a diverse group of people with common interests. I like that we are all working with food in one way or another, but have very different jobs and career paths. I also think that the events offered are fantastic!

Dawn N.

I have attended the food safety conference for the past 3-4 years and have met some amazing people and the program was always “top notch.” This year, I decided to join so I could get to know the group of professionals better.
