Words from the Chair
Happy New Year to all!
The first half of our 2012-13 IFT year was great fun with an awesome
start at the Phillies game, a great day of golf and a good showing at
Supplier’s Night despite having to shift the date at the last minute.
The December meeting was extraordinary where we learned who among us are
“super tasters” with Dr. Beverly Tepper. Marjorie Medina has put
together a wonderful list of upcoming speakers you won’t want to miss.
Cathy Fyock has arranged for some wonderful (and yummy) venues for our
meetings. Nitin Joshi has worked hard to reinstate the honored Julius
Bauerman Award and Christina Bednarz continues to lead our Scholarship
Awards activity. Mary Randzo is completing the revised By-Laws and
composing an organizational guide for the section. Brya Sturges has
continued to masterfully manage communications. Lisa Sadar continues as
our National Liaison and assistant to Bill Kirkland who year-after-year
commands a successful Golf Outing. Ellie Kardaras recently took the
Treasurer’s reins from Amit Pal keeping us fiscally sound. Lindsey
Keskinen has managed membership and our growth has been recognized.
Susan Mayer, Mike Villari and Barbara Brojack have mastered efforts on
hosting Supplier’s Night.
So what’s missing? YOU! Our Executive Committee has openings for
leaders to manage student relations and to fill spots that will soon be
vacated. Other committees are a team of ONE and could sure use one or
two to assist with managing the tasks of this great organization.
Committee work is relatively simple and does not have to take a lot of
time. We meet only 3-4 times a year and have quick but lively
Please feel free to reach out to me or any of the EXCOM committee
members who will be happy to welcome you in helping direct the
See you on February 5th!
P.S. Timing is tight for anyone
wanting to register for Certified Food Scientist! Don’t delay!
