Official Cheesemongers

    Official Conference Cheesemongers

    Each year, the ACS Annual Conference relies on the hard work and dedication of countless volunteers. Among these volunteer roles is that of the Official Conference Cheesemongers, the individuals who oversee and manage the receipt, movement, storage, and preparation of thousands of cheeses and other donated products that play a starring role in ACS conference events. Due to the importance and scope of this volunteer role, ACS selects a team of Official Conference Cheesemongers to assist with the conference each year. The position is for experienced cheesemongers who…

    • want to apply their skills to the broadest array of American cheeses they’ll ever encounter
    • can successfully juggle many tasks while managing a team of dedicated volunteers
    • think on their feet and can find creative solutions to unexpected challenges
    • can dedicate 7- 10 days to fulfill this role during the conference
    • have the support of their employer to undertake this role
    • enjoy being part of the behind-the-scenes action at the ACS Conference
    • wish to be recognized as a top professional in their field
