President’s Message

Greetings Columbus Chapter Membership,


Happy New Year to you, your families as we usher in 2019! As always at this time of year, we usually take the time to reflect on the success of the previous year and look forward to the future. 2018 was another amazing year for our chapter with a host of memories and growth.

Our chapter has a team of fully engaged members who have a high level of pride for our food and beverage industry standards. Our community service initiatives, and the continued development of culinarians at all levels through educational programs. I trust this year more members can find the opportunity to assist with our annual fundraising events.

Our board of directors and the executive board leadership team not only express a passion for our chapter’s performance, but also actively show a sense of purpose with the supportive actions by committee chairpersons providing successful results year over year. I thank all of you for every minute you give to our chapter’s success. Without your support we are no more than just another organization; you make a difference!

My commitment to you this last year was to continue to look for ways to strengthen our chapter, engage with community organizations, develop partnerships and drive educational opportunities for all.

Looking forward to seeing you at our Presidents awards gala at the Hilton Easton, Sunday, January 20th starting with an innovative reception at 5:00 and a wonderful dinner to follow at 6:00.

Chef Dionisio and his team assure a memorable evening as we recognize our chapter members, students, vendors and the dedicated tried and true ROAR recipients for the successes of 2018 who collectively make our chapter great! At that time I will share highlights of 2018 and a vision for 2019 at our Gala next Sunday.


Chef C. David Wolf, CEC, AAC
