"Growing" the Personal Chef industry in an ongoing Professional and Responsible manner.

Supporting the success of Personal Chefs - no matter what their affiliation - in building successful, fulfilling, state-of-the-art Personal Chef Businesses.

Supplying cutting edge - up to date - training and support systems for working Personal Chefs.

Providing a network for professional Personal Chefs through both the National Association and Local Chapters of the National Association, in order to represent the Personal Chef Industry as a credible force within their local communities, and as a opportunity for local Personal Chefs to share their strengths and grow together.

Providing an Internet presence with which to expand the public's knowledge, make available to the public the information for contacting Personal chefs in their areas, and to provide a PERSONAL CHEF FORUM for Personal chefs around the Globe to be in touch with one another 24 hours a day.

To also provide a MEMBER CHEF FORUM as a means of disseminating pertinent information instantly and acting as a "help-line" for member chefs with inquiries or information they wish to share with the group.

Providing the highest quality of service to our clients on an ongoing basis.

To take a stand on maintaining Personal and Professional Integrity in our industry, and to avoid the temptation of comparing our organization to that of unscrupulous competitors
