Pillars of the ICA 


In 2012, the Board of Directors of the International Caterers Association developed a new action plan and four Pillars that will help strengthen the catering industry.  In 2013, we added a Marketing Pillar and a Culinary Pillar to our fold.  Below is a brief breakdown of each Pillar.


ICA is always looking for members who are willing to serve on one of our committees. Limited not just to company owners, any member of the association; be it a operations manager, sales manager, marketing manager or chef; if you have an interest, special skill that makes you an ideal candidate, or if you know someone who should be on one of our committees, we want you!  Email the association at info@internationalcaterers.org to learn more.
