CDM Career Network www.healthecareers.com/anfp
Our membership of over 280 consists of men and women who work in the food industry. Healthcare, correctional facilities, schools, camps are just a few examples of our membership occupations. The chapter hosts two workshops each year, and each district also organizes two per year. Chapter and district leaders provide diverse educational programs for our members that include topics like foodservice, sanitation, hiring and retention, legislation, and personal health tips. The state and district boards of directors are volunteer-led. Committees assist the board and membership with various projects.

Safe Food For Seniors Introduced To Congress!
On May 23, 2013, U.S. Representatives Tom Latham (R-IA), and co-sponsor Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) introduced Safe Food for Seniors Act of 2013 ( H.R. 2181) in Congress!
H.R. 2181 requires that federally-funded skilled nursing facilities (SNF) have their Director of Food Services, in the absence of a full-time dietitian, be trained as a Certified Dietary Manager, Certified Food Protection Professional (CDM, CFPP), or a Dietetic Technician, Registered (DTR), or have the equivalent training from military experience or traditional education.
The Safe Food for Seniors Act of 2013 (H.R. 2181) ensures the recognition of the CDM credential nationwide. Stay tuned for more information, including a link to the Safe Food for Seniors web page, devoted specifically to the bill and a grassroots campaign.
These are exciting times to be a member of ANFP!
