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!

One of the first organizations I joined as a new professional in the food industry in 2006 was FCS Professionals (TC HEIB at the time). Year after year, it’s one of the best investments for me to make – the community of support, high-value networking, knowledge-sharing, and professional leadership and fellowship consistently delivers year after year!

I was honored as a 50 year member of AAFCS in June 2016, joining HEIB at the same time. Serving on the local and national levels of all four groups; Nationals HEIB, TCHEIB, AHEA, and MHEA, I gained leadership skills, learned new proficeincies, networked with colleagues, and made many new friends. Viewing the group from a historical position I wholeheartedly support these new organizations and members..
