APP Update
I added a “CFP Issue” document tab.  App users can now easily locate and download the pdf copy of the issues as submitted. All of the current issue pdfs are linked there.

People (Members)

It looks like people put their own information in here voluntarily.  We do not have to do anything.


[Lead: Chirag; >> Chirag contact Jay Neal for Speaker info]. We need an update here.  Here we need several CFP APP comm volunteers to gather speaker information.  Note that the APP has the ability to attach a pdf of pptx.  Can we and do we want to ask speakers for their PPTs.  Everyone asks.  This would be a great place for this for those speakers willing to share their slides. Note this can be updated to reflect those last minute changes made by speakers.

APP upload access

Ann for Scheduling, Brian N for Sponsors, Chirag for Speakers and Don S + Veronica for Twitter/News Feeds.

Last item for this first meeting is that for those designated as the “point” persons on tasks above can be granted permission to upload directly into the APP back office.  Access naturally lets you edit anything or delete anything :-(.

Friday March 23 TASKS

Update on Previous week tasks

Further Discussion on Twitter and News Feeds

[Alli Twitter lead + Don S.] I put in some hash tags.  Then we assign that twitter account to an APP-comm member sitting in that council to tweet out issue news.  Just a thought. How else might we want to use Twitter?  Handles.  Also see that one or more hash tags need to be changed.

There are News feeds in Attendify.  We would have to run our own news feed to populate items.  But this might be a way to provide communication to stakeholder groups (academia, industry, regulator, consumer) — where to meet, reminders, etc.

Banner for APP Marketing

[Lead: Veronica B]. Veronica sent out a graphic.  We need feedback on that.


The RFSC is a consortium of food industry member organizations and individual professionals.  The consortium is mountain-west based (Utah, Nevada, Wyoming) with the main goal of collaboration between its members in food safety across the USA. Collaboration activities include education, training, workshops, conferences, networking events, and the creation of retail-foodservice food safety standards.


  • Enhance food safety in the retail and foodservice sectors in the farm-to-fork food chain
  • Enable cutting edge culinary techniques under the safest possible guidelines
  • Provide education and training opportunities in food safety (targeting both industry and regulatory)
  • Standardize food safety processes
  • Identify and encourage advanced technologies in food safety

As a consortium, member organizations or individual professionals may join and collaborate at will.  The Consortium is apolitical with the exception of stakeholder activities within the structure of the Conference for Food Protection.  Hopefully rare, but members may also oppose any activities of the Consortium.
