Why Become a Member?
To enhance your relationships in the Baking Industry while having fun at the same time.
The “BAKERS COURTESY CLUB OF CHICAGO” is composed of members of allied baking industry suppliers. This allows its members to build networking opportunities, partnerships and relationships within the related industries that will sponsor business opportunities, resource connections and growth for our individual members.
Our members range – from oil to flour suppliers, equipment, media, packaging, ingredients, transportation and consulting – where else will you find a group more knowledgeable in these important areas!
The Bakers Courtesy Club of Chicago is proud to have assisted the American Society of Baking since 1928. Known as the “Ask Me” Men and Women, The Baker’s Courtesy Club of Chicago assists the American Society of Baking during its Annual Technical Conference.
An affiliate member of ATBI, the Club is devoted to promoting camaraderie and friendship among baking industry suppliers through our four annual functions:
Annual Business Meeting and Pre-ASB luncheon – Mid-January
A brief business meeting and luncheon is held discussing the club’s yearly functions, the outline of the upcoming ASB Meeting and membership assignments at the ASB.
ASB Baking Tech Conference – Late February/Early March
Our primary focus is to support the American Society of Baking at their annual conference in Chicago. We do this by being in front of the 1200 Members of the ASB in working the registration desk, helping as ushers and hall monitors, while meeting ASB members from around the country and from around the world. Where else will you be in front of that many potential customers?
Annual Golf Outing – Mid Summer/Early Fall
Every year we host our annual golf outing. This outing is open to bakers, neighbors, friends and spouses. As our membership comes from all parts of the area, this gives the membership the opportunity to network and to get to know the other members. Cash raffles are a big hit along with excellent meals and traditional golf awards.
Annual Holiday Party – Early December
With this very friendly group, we host an annual event where the membership brings spouses, neighbors, friends and bakers. We have an excellent dinner with prizes and this offers another opportunity for the newer members to get to know the others in a fun setting.
