Labensky elected as officer to international culinary association
COLUMBUS, Miss. -- Chef Sarah Labensky, director of Mississippi University for Women's Culinary Arts Institute, was elected secretary-treasurer to the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP).
As secretary-treasurer, Labensky will automatically move up through the offices to become president in April 2004. She was first elected to the 11-member board in 1999 and then re-elected in 2001.
"I am honored to be able to serve my profession in this capacity. Membership in IACP has allowed me to travel, meet and work with many outstanding culinarians," she said. "Membership has literally made a world of difference in my career and I hope to use this opportunity to further promote MUW's culinary graduates and our unique education programs."
The IACP is a not-for-profit professional association providing continuing education and professional development opportunities for its members, who are engaged in the areas of culinary education, communication or in the preparation of food and drink.
Members of the association come from 36 countries and are literally a "Who's Who" of the food world. This diversity not only offers unique insight into the world's cuisines, but also provides excellent networking opportunities.
