The Society for Hospitality & Foodservice Management (SHFM), the only association focused on Workplace Hospitality and Amenities in the Foodservice Industry, is pleased to announce its 2022-23 Rising Stars.

SHFM recognizes the importance of Young Professionals and the role they play in an organization’s success and longevity. The SHFM Rising Stars Program has been established to recognize and reward individuals for their outstanding work. SHFM values the Rising Stars’ insight into potential growth solutions for years to come. In order to be eligible, participants must be employed at their member company for at least one year and be 39 years age or under. Rising Stars receive a wealth of benefits from the program including membership, participation at the National and Critical Issues Conferences and the opportunity to work with SHFM leadership to help form the future of the Society.

Additionally, SHFM announces the 2022-23 class of the Julie Flik Rising Star Continuation Program. This program honors the memory of SHFM Past President and industry icon, Julie Flik. The Julie Flik Program is intended to allow those who have timed out of our Rising Star program to continue their involvement in SHFM. Qualifications include participation as a Rising Star for three consecutive years and still being a Young Professional, 39 and younger.
