The RBA Roadshow is Back !
Posted By Bakery.com - on Oct 10, 2012
The RBA Roadshow is coming to Chicago! Sunday, December 2nd ~ Save the date!
Well, even though All Things Baking has just wrapped up, the RBA Education Committee is moving forward with their next project - to bring back the RBA Roadshow! Many of our long-standing members remember the RBA Roadshow from the '80s and '90s. A regional education program that brought together bakers, decorators, vendors and educators, the RBA Roadshow was ~ and soon will be again ~ a great way for us all to travel, learn and connect on a local level. Chicago (my kind of town) is the place where the RBA will launch the first of several regional education events planned for RBA members throughout the year. Kendall College, one of Chicago's top culinary schools, will serve as our host on December 2nd. Loading in at Kendall College in the morning, the day will begin with bakery tours of three of Chicago's most well-renowned bakeries. Lunch will be provided at Kendall College - along with a vendor showcase mid-day. Following the lunch/vendor showcase, RBA will offer two tracks of education; one for business, one for cake decorating/bakery production. Renee Rouwhorst, Pat Jacoby and Michelle Boyd are among some our featured speakers, with members of the Kendall College staff rounding out the educational line-up. Following the educational portion of the day - we will have a fabulous networking event with some amazing food made by Kendall College's aspiring chefs. And of course,what's a networking event without some adult beverages? The day will wrap up in the early evening to give our attendees time to travel home - or to go out on the town! (p.s. Michigan Avenue will be all decorated for Christmas by then! Twinkle! Twinkle!) So, it sounds pretty darned awesome, don't you think? Details will follow on what is sure to be a great day for everyone in the baking industry.
