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.
CE Self-Reporting and Audit Process
All CDMs are now report their own CE hours under their member login at www.ANFPonline.org. 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.
ANFP advocates for members regarding issues that affect the Certified Dietary Manager, food safety, and the foodservice profession. Click here to find out about Safe Food for Seniors Act, as well as ANFP-PAC, our political action committee that provides financial support to the advocacy effort.
