NYIFT New Professionals Meet, Network, and Barbecue!
The NYIFT New Professionals Committee is a relatively new committee launched by IFT for recent graduates and individuals with less than 10 years in the food science profession. It was designed so that these individuals can become more involved in IFT. NYIFT’s New Professionals Committee invites everyone from our section to attend their events. Most recently an End of Summer Barbecue was hosted at Watchung Park Skytop in Scotch Plains, NJ. The event had over 50 attendees. People really enjoyed the low-key, more informal nature of this barbecue in which families and friends could attend to learn more about what we do as an industry. We hope to see many new professionals at future events.
