RCA Committees

As a volunteer-driven organization, the Research Chefs Association relies on our committees to help move the association forward in a myriad of ways.

We are grateful to these members for their service as committee leaders for 2024-2025. Each committee has a unique and important role in guiding RCA into the future.

If you are interested in learning about RCA committees or volunteering your time to support your association, please let us know at info@culinology.org.
