By now, I’m sure everyone is aware of the new Community Advisory Council and that we will be having our inaugural meeting on September 12-13, 2022.
Some community members will join us in person in Boston, others will be remote on Zoom. Either way, we’re happy to have you all engaged and willing to help us repair and revive our community.

We’re finalizing the agenda for this session today and tomorrow so there’s still time for you to make sure the topics that are important to you are discussed using this form Chef Community Advisory Council (CAC) Topics Survey .
