"Becoming a CDM, CFPP has allowed me to get my dream job. I can move between an executive chef position to a general manager position to a dining service director role. I can use the knowledge gained while completing my certification in many roles. It has helped me understand the whole picture when it comes to dining services."

"Being a CDM networks me with a community of food service professionals that are in the same field as me, and are “my tribe” that I connect with, learn from, and can ask questions confidently. Continuing education is required to be part of any professional organization, and ANFP does an excellent job to ensure our profession stays current so we can serve our clients well."
