Special Announcement on Voting Results

Chef John Reed CEC, CCA

President ACF Windy City Professional Culinarians Inc.
Chef Joe Aiello, CEC, AAC

President ACF Chicago Chefs de Cuisine
To the membership of ACF Windy City Professional Culinarians and

ACF Chicago Chefs de Cuisine
We would like to announce the results of the vote by both chapters on a motion of allowing the current boards to move forward in creating a new and unified chapter of professional chefs in the Chicago area.
ACF WCPC members voted 91% to 9% in favor of the motion.
ACF CCC members voted unanimously in favor of the motion.
With the results, the unified boards have been in discussion and a transition committee has been formed to begin the process of forming this new chapter. The committee is meeting this week to delegate the responsibilities and set the framework of creating an exciting organization that is best suit for the professional chef of today.
As of now, your memberships will stay the same and moving forward all future activities will be conducted under a single banner of both chapters until such time the chapter has been formally created. 

Once done you will be given notice on transferring your membership and affiliation.
This is an exciting new step forward on the path of the ACF in Chicago and the surrounding counties of NE Illinois.
We look forward to your involvement and support.

Chef John Reed CEC, CCA President
Chef Joe Aiello, CEC, AAC President ACF Chicago Chefs de Cuisine
