Looking for a Person to Assist
with Newsletter and Website
for this Fall

Mark Williams, the Chefs de Cusine's webmaster and newsletter, is looking for one or two people to volunteer and assist him with maintaining the Chefs de Cusine website and compose the monthly newsletter between August and December, later this year, when he will be "off the grid" more frequently than he will be on it.

The Chefs de Cuisine website is maintained using a very easy-to-use, dedicated website menagement tool that is menu driven and uses a WYSIWYG text editor. Knowledge of HTML is NOT required, but a simple knowledge of HTML does help to "tweek" formating.

The newsletter is composed using Adobe InDesign, a dedicated page layout program. But for the duration of his absence, Microsoft Publisher or Microsoft Word - OR - the website's newsetter editor function - are adequate substitutes.

Mark will work with you between now and August to get you up to speed and make you feel comfortable with the responsibilities.

If you are interested in assisting Mark, or simply need more information, please contact Mark at newsletter@acfchefsdecuisinestlouis.org.

Change in Credit Card Processing Procedures

The Chefs de Cuisine website will no longer accept credit card payments for meetings and special events, as the processing fees used by the website processing provider were climbing. However, we will continue to accept credit card payments at the door for each event, using a moble card reader that has lower processing fees. For all future events, please bring your payment (credit card, cash, or check) with you to the event. Thank you for your understanding.

Find Us on Facebook Logo

Well, we finally did it. Chefs de Cuisine is now on Facebook - amazingly before the decade was over !!! While this site will remain as our official website for news and event information, Facebook will give us an additional avenue for sharing information wih our members. Additional, Facebook is a much better  site for sharing photos. So though we will continue to post a few photos on this website, whole series of photos in photo albums will be available on Facebook.

So, Follow us on Facebook!
