Letter From Our President

Dear Dames,

As I write to you towards the completion of my elected term as president of Les Dames d'Escoffier's New York Chapter, I want to thank you for all your support. It has been a tremendous honor to serve as your president over the past two years.

The many recent, distressing national events have amplified for me the importance of community in solidifying values and creating lives of meaning and purpose.

It is a reminder that our special organization and the industry it serves stands as a center of gravity amidst life’s turmoil by giving us a means to support each other, as well as honor those who have come before, and pave the way for those who will come after.

At the upcoming 2018 LDNY Annual Meeting, you will hear all that has been achieved during the past year, thanks to your commitment. And we will share with you some of the outstanding results and new initiatives that will help frame our chapter's positive momentum into the coming year and beyond.

You'll find a few highlights HERE

Best regards,

Joan Brower

Dame Joan Brower
