Duties of the Honour Society Chair
Dear Honour Society Membe
I hope you are well in these first few weeks of 2017!
We are well under way to have what we were looking for – a proud body of CCFCC members who have worked hard to get the Association where it is today. However we cannot sit back and dwell on the glory of the past. On the contrary, our association needs more hard working members in order for us to grow and stay involved and do all that we can for the betterment of the Federation.
At this time, our society members have the opportunity to elect their next chairperson.
I would like to request that you review the attached job description and consider if you or any other member would wish to stand for this position. If so, please complete the form shown on the reverse of this letter and send to the CCFCC Administrator, Chef Roy Butterworth by March 25, 2017. We will then compile a list of contenders and send out a mail ballot to all members
I would be glad to assist the newly elected Chairman in any way that I can, in order to continue what we have started six years ago.
We have also posted the terms of reference for the position of chair on the CCFCC website under the heading Honour Society.
