Networking Events – Get Involved

A great way for ICE alumni to network and find new opportunities in the culinary and hospitality industries is to attend one of ICE’s on-campus events, including our popular Meet the Culinary Entrepreneurs event series. Many ICE alumni also enjoy coming back to campus to share their experiences and expertise with active students. Some have led culinary and pastry demonstrations, others have joined panel discussions about specific topics. If you’d like to be a speaker at an ICE event, or give a chef demonstration, contact ICE’s Vice President of Culinary Operations, Barry Tonkinson, at BTonkinson@ice.edu.
