Food & Culinary Professionals


Hi and welcome to the FCP website,

I have had the best time serving as Chair of Food and Culinary Professionals DPG. Thank you for stirring my soul!
This past year my number one goal was that FCP be relevant to you by making your work and your life easier with resources and programs. Let me know what’s working and what could be tweaked so we can make FCP better than ever.
The Executive Committee is already making plans for next year. Thanks to Hilary Thesmar, Membership Chair, our Member Survey was distributed in March. The seemingly good return rate will give the EC great feedback for our June planning session.
We wouldn’t be here if not for you. Thanks for your membership in our Dietetic Practice Group. With FCP you get a lot of bang for your buck! Your $35 dues provides:
• over 30 Continuing Professional Education Units  through webinars, newsletters, book club and FNCE® programming 
• networking via our Electronic Mailing Lists, book club, FNCE events and FCP Connects
• information on menu labeling, agriculture (including virtual tours), food safety and certificate of training for supermarket RDs,
• opportunity to participate in recipe contests
• critical review and comment on Academy Position Papers and Public Policy initiatives
• connection through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
• foreign (Portugal) and domestic (Charleston) travel opportunities

Speaking of travel, when you attend professional conferences or head out for business, consider getting together with other FCP members with a FCP Connects. FCP Connects provides the tools to set up casual networking opportunities where FCP members get together over coffee, a quick lunch, happy hour or dinner. The how-to’s are under Member Benefits.

With all the member benefits FCP offers, it’s likely we have something to help you reach your goals and be the best ever!
Be sure to share the deliciousness of what you’re cooking on our Facebook page at Food & Culinary Professionals Dietetic Practice Group.  
With a grateful heart to all who’ve been part of FCP… past, present and future.

Warm regards,  

Judy Barbe, MS, RDN
2015-2016 FCP Chair
