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. 

CE Self-Reporting and Audit Process

All CDMs are now report their own CE hours under their member login at  To keep the credential strong on this honor system, the auditing process of these records begins in June 2015 for
those whose qualifying period is ending 5/31/15.   Some will be randomly selected for an audit; additionally, all of those who did not complete their 45 CE hours will automatically be entered into the process. 

CDMs are responsible for tracking their own continuing education (CE) hours, and submitting them at the end of their three-year cycle.  CDMs should save all continuing education-related documentation (proof of attendance, certificates of completion, etc.) for two three-year certification cycles in case of a CE audit.
