Dear Northern California Section Leader,

Congratulations! The Northern California Section is being recognized as a 2019-2020 Section of Excellence. This recognition symbolizes your section's commitment to IFT, your section members, and the food science and technology profession.

The Northern California Section is a vibrant community of dedicated professionals that embody the spirit of IFT. The events you hold throughout the year, your exemplary volunteers, your dedication to students, and your excellence in leadership demonstrate your ongoing devotion to ensuring that your section will flourish for years to come.

To receive these designations, the section must meet or exceed several criteria, including holding a variety of events throughout the year and demonstrating exemplary volunteer service. The full list of recognized sections will be published to the Section Recognition page on ift.org. Please contact us for the Section of Excellence award logo.
