Introducing FCIA Regional Meet-Ups.

FCIA asked how we can better serve our members and you told us - provide opportunities to network with colleagues in the fine chocolate community throughout the year. And, make them closer to where you live and work so you can focus on regional issues. 

FCIA is proud to present our first series of Regional Meet-Ups. As of this date, we're planning on gatherings in Georgia, New England, New Mexico, Minnesota, Oklahoma, New York, Southern California, Seattle, Texas AND Brazil! We expect more as the word gets around.
