Announcing 2018 Cheese Industry Exam ** Mentorship Program:
Current CCPs™ will be teamed with 2018 Exam takers to assist them in preparing for the July 25th exam in Pittsburgh. If you are interested in sitting for the exam, everything you need to know is via link below.
Current CCPs™, please contact any group administrator to let us know you are available to help our next class of CCPs™. We will be limiting the number of mentorships to no more than 4 per group. CCPs™ can select their own venue to work with their groups: one-on-one question asking/answering, group online meetings, videos, etc.
During the coming weeks, I will also be contacting CCPs™ to solicit your participation (think: guilting you into helping).
Once the applicants for the 2018 exam are set, we will begin to pair exam takers with mentors.
The Cheese Study Group will begin our annual review in early April with volunteers leading the discussion for each Domain.
Please share on all your social media platforms and with anyone who is a CCP or taking the 2018 exam.

If you are interested in learning more about beekeeping, please join the Lake Hartwell Beekeepers Association on February 24, 2018 for a day of beekeeping and hive education. For $50, you’ll enjoy 8 hours of seminars and events to help you start your own hive or simply learn more about honey and bees, the pollinators of 80% of our food crops and the only insect to make food for human consumption…. honey, beautiful honey.
The day will include lunch and door prizes along with classes led by local and award-winning beekeepers. Whether you are an established beekeeper or just getting started, this is a must-attend event at the First Baptist Church in Lavonia, Georgia.
