Serving Chefs Since 1925 

Congratulations, we have met the 100% challenge – ACF Chapter Retention Campaign! Beginning in 2014, we met the criteria to this contest that rewards chapters with the highest percentage of professional culinarian membership with two free renewals for a year.
The board will give out the two free ACF memberships to the first and second current member that brings in a new member. Contest starts April 1, 2015 through January 31, 2016.
Each current member will receive a free ACF membership for a year.
​Current member must contact our Membership Chair Dwight Ferguson to receive credit.
We value your membership and appreciate your support!
Thank you all. Joe Aiello, CEC, AAC

Dear Fellow ACF Leaders –

The Wisconsin ACF Chapters are collaborating with the Wisconsin Restaurant Association to

create a conference-within-a-conference for chefs and other back-of-house professionals which

will be hosted at the Midwest Foodservice Expo March 9-11, 2015 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 

Thanks to the support of Gordon Food Service, we’ve put together a strong line-up of

programming that we believe will provide great insights into current trends and culinary

techniques.  In addition to all of the workshops and culinary demos, there will be 300+

foodservice exhibit, special events and competitions to explore.

We’re inviting you and your chapter members to join us in Milwaukee for this

conference.  Complimentary registration to the Expo is being extended to all ACF

members.  And most of the training sessions are included with your registration.

ACF National is providing 3 CEHs just for attending the Expo.  And other CEHs will be offered

for specific training sessions happening over the three days.

The attached flyer provides you with a customized schedule for this chef conference.  Please p

this on to your members.  And be sure to check out for the full

schedule where we’re sure you’ll find other valuable things to see and do.

We hope you’ll join us in Milwaukee for an opportunity to learn, network and be

inspired.  Please feel free to reach out to Dawn Faris with any specific questions --


Please pass these instructions on to your members on how to register for FREE as an ACF


      Enter “ACF2015” as your group code

Hope to see you in Milwaukee!
