THE INTELLIGENCE


The FCSI EF board John Cornyn FCSI, 2014 president of the board


Foundation update


It’s been a busy year for the FCSI Educational Foundation. Ruby Parker Puckett FFCSI rounds up the changes leading to new projects and goals

uring 2012-13, the FCSI Educational Foundation (EF)


revised its purpose, vision, mission and set core values. The board was reduced from nine to seven members. Committees were appointed to carry out the proposed plan of work and to streamline the operation of the board, and job responsibilities for board members, evaluating investment methods and other improvements were developed. This year has also seen a number of existing members retire. As Jack Scott, vice president of Alto-Shaam, representing the Allied group said: “A new board is now in place to carry on the work of the past two years. There is a new culture totally committed to FCSI members and the Allied community to provide value to our customers and to fulfill our mission, which is to provide funding of educational programmes that promote life-long learning, professionalism and ethical behaviour.” John Cornyn FCSI, 2014 president of


the board added: “Our research and recent experience suggests the EF must do a better job of explaining what it does and the positive results gained via grants and financial support provided. We also need to create and sustain a network of local units and geographical representation to tell the FCSI EF story.”


Next steps


As the next phase in organising and telling our story began, the EF and Worldwide (WW) boards met in Los Angeles in February 2014. The EF plan of work for 2014-16 was presented to the WW Board, and Jonathan Doughty, president of FCSI Worldwide, presented a proposal for the new Foodservice Consultant app to the board. Both presentations were received with enthusiasm, not only for what was to be accomplished but also for the desire to work together to improve education for all ages and occupations within the society. Jonathan’s weekly newsletter regularly provides information on the EF, and this is just another example of our joint desire for all members to know what is happening in their society. The EF board has now approved


a loan to WW for the development of the app. This is just the beginning of the two boards working together on other joint educational programmes. To further tell our story the EF has placed marketing as its priority for

2014-16. The committee has been working diligently on methods to let you know who we are and what we do – our logo will now appear on all marketing and other EF materials. The marketing committee presented a budget to the board requesting funds for the development of consistent educational materials for use by all districts, banners that can be used at district meetings and revised applications for the four educational opportunities


offered by EF. Jonn Close FCSI is providing the board and particularly the marketing committee with the tools to meet these requests. We encourage you as industry leaders and members to help fund the programmes encouraging life- long learning offered by the FCSI EF. Donations are welcomed and may be anonymous. If preferred, donations are accepted in the name of your company and division, or in order to honour those who have played a significant role in FCSI. You may also determine to which division the funds may be given. In the US, donations are tax deductable. Donations may also be specified for supporting participation with the local chapter of the FCSI EF such as dinners, raffles, speakers for local meetings, other special events and for student attendance at local or district meetings. Sponsorship for scholarships and internships are needed. Already, the Americas division has been very successful with an Innovation Showcase. Please check with your district representative for information on how to donate and specify how you would like your donation be used.
