In response to the rapidly evolving events surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the American Cheese Society (ACS) acknowledges the impact to our members and greater community. We are with you during this challenging time. A task force committee has been formed to address our current plans for Blazing the Trail for Cheese and certification exams in Portland this summer. We are committed to sharing updates as it affects our members and community and will do so here as information becomes available.
