Chef Erich Chieca is a 3-term Research Chefs Association board member whose active volunteerism has been just one of the superpowers that has helped Chef create a enriched career through friends and mentors who gave him opportunities. Reflective and thoughtful, Chef Erich emphasized that no matter the product we make nor the role we have, we are still in the hospitality business. Whether you're in R&D or sales, you have to identify your customer and find ways to serve them.
Volunteering with the RCA is one way to really develop your career network, which will open doors for you. It's also an excellent way to get leadership experience through taking on a volunteer activity for the RCA, such as conference planning, local chapter service projects, or even running for a board position.
