Dear fellow NACUFS members. It is hard to believe we are halfway through the fall semester; here in the Northeast foliage is at its peak and our menus showcase the bountiful harvests, tantalizing our students’ taste buds.
College and University Dining continues to be an exciting and dynamic segment—in recent years the role of a campus food service provider evolved from providing a service to enhancing campus life through dining experiences. As college and universities across the country compete to be the destination of choice for the best and brightest, institutions must differentiate themselves to attract top students—a strong dining program can influence enrollment decisions. NACUFS mission to support and promote excellence in collegiate dining is paramount.
I am honored to represent such a passionate group of individuals; our members’ dedication to NACUFS is unparalleled. As we move through the transition process together the council’s top priorities are communication and engagement—both veteran and first time members. Specifically we will focus on education, marketing and membership in concert with the overall organizational goals to be the place, the source and the voice for campus dining.
NACUFS’s strength comes from the power of its members. We are one organization focused on a common goal, excellence in collegiate dining, uniquely differentiated from any other organization by a rich mosaic of regional character.
Thank you again for the opportunity to serve NACUFS as your northeast regional director and welcome your continued thoughts and feedback.
NACUFS Northeast Regional Director
