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.  If you are interested in volunteering for a Pillar and want to be a part of making a difference in our industry, please contact ICA Headquarters at 410-931-8100.
