The Council of Fellows was established in 1981 as a means of recognizing extraordinary contributions by Society members to the foodservice and hospitality industry, to the foodservice consulting profession, and to FCSI. The letters FFCSI signify attainment of the ultimate honor the Society bestows upon its members.

The Fellows Honor is the highest honor that FCSI can bestow upon a member. This honor is only bestowed by FCSI Worldwide and not by a Division or other subsidiary organization. The selection of a person deserving such an honor is based on contribution to FCSI, the foodservice industry, education and the greater community. Headquarters will maintain a confidential file containing the names of all Nominees. The nomination form will be completed by Headquarters and then forwarded to the nominee’s home Divisional office. If the Divisional Board approves the nomination then the forms are sent to the FCSI Worldwide Board of consideration
Nominations may be made at any time. Self-nomination is perfectly acceptable.
The presentation to the approved recipient at a FCSI event will be presided over by the President of FCSI WW and the Chair of the nominee’s home Division.
FCSI Council of Fellows Nomination Process
- An FCSI member seeking to make a nomination requests the Nomination Form and Scoring Sheet (Nomination Packet) from the WW office.

- The complete packet is validated by the WW office.
- The packet is then forwarded to the nominee’s home Divisional office for Divisional board approval.
- Once approved by the Divisional board the nomination is forwarded to the WW board for ratification and final approval.
- Approved nominees are then officially inducted into the CoF at a date determined by the WW Board.
