Senior Chef Status/Dues

February 16, 2009

I have been a member for well over 20 years and recently received my lifetime CEC certification and was also planning on getting my senior chef status until I learned that the age for recognition is now 65. This is a bit disturbing to me after forty plus years in the industry and getting to retirement age to learn that the ACF decided to make up their own rules for retirement and disregard the guide lines of the state and federal agencies that regulate senior programs.
My dilemma, is do I pay the full membership dues or let my membership go away. A tough choice that I’m struggling with, as I just received my annual dues invoice.

Michael, that’s my issue. I realize their are bigger issues on the table and want you to know as long as I’m a member you have my support.
