SEPTEMBER 2019 MEETING
A great many thanks to all those who came out to brave the heat last Thursday night at Eno's Pizza! We had a really good turn out and look forward to building on the participation in the events to follow. Our credit card reader did run into some troubleshooting throughout the night; we thank you for your patience and will be sending out invoices to those who had intended on using their credit card that day.

We are thinking of hosting our December meeting (holiday party) at Pete's Dueling Piano bar. We are asking for your feedback in understanding if the majority of our members enjoy a dinner holiday party or a "party" party. Please help guide us in planning your events and take the survey HERE. The survey should take only three minutes or less to complete. 

Please join me in congratulating Stephen Drake who has completed FIFTY years as an IFT member! Cheers to you and thank you so much for all of your dedication!
On Thursday, September 19, 2019, we will be having our guest speaker hosted by the national IFT. Dr. Elizabeth Sloan, President of Sloan Trends Inc. will be speaking about "Navigating the Food Trends Minefield." The event will be held at Saltgrass in Lewisville. Please see below regarding details for the event. 

Hope to see you all there!
