Letter From Our President

Dear Dames,

It’s spring, the season of rebirth and renewal. How appropriate that this is the time when we conduct LDNY’s New Membership Drive.

On March 1st you should have received the materials needed to sponsor potential new members and I hope you will take this initiative seriously and present some of the smart, savvy women that you know from all disciplines within the food, fine beverage, and hospitality fields. New Dames enrich our organization by bringing diverse energy, talents, and fresh points of view. Please be sure to extend invitations to women that you know personally and note that applications are due by April 15. If  you have questions or need the complete New Membership Application Packet, contact Dames Deborah Mintcheff or Marsha Palanci directly at dsmintcheff@gmail.com or marsha.palanci@gmail.com.
