AnnuAL Meeting - California League of Food Processors by zhouwenjuan


									California League of Food Processors

AnnuAL Meeting
         April 28 - 30, 2010
       Four Seasons Biltmore
           Santa Barbara
  CLFP MeMBeRS & FRiendS

the CLFP Annual Meeting has a long-standing tradition of bringing	
together member representatives who share a common bond
of working in the California Food Processing industry. this
two-day event features informative and educational updates
along with fun and relaxing social activities.
One of the most important functions of the annual meeting
is to provide a forum for CLFP staff, leaders and invited
expert speakers conversant in the topics of the day, to
present important legislative and regulatory updates that
have an effect on how you do business in our state. it offers
an opportunity to get reacquainted and more informed on
issues of relevance occurring throughout the industry. And,
not to be forgotten, it allows attendees some time to step
away from their busy schedules and hopefully, enjoy good
times with associates, friends and spouses.
CLFP invites all of our members, both new and old, to join
us this spring in Santa Barbara and experience the value that
can be found by participating in the CLFP Annual Meeting.

               We look forward to seeing you
