Dear All,

Here is some additional information for the Young Chefs Programme on the 15 Sep and APF on 16 Sep.

1. Registration
- To encourage and lessen the burden of the YCCs attending the event, I have discussed with Chef Rick Stephen and he has agreed to cover the cost (APF registration fees) of the Young Chef President or One person of each Young Chef Club / Country by WACS. Nevertheless, YCCs are encourage to bring some of their committee members to expose and allow them to understand more about WACS and other YCCs. YCCs will have to borne the registration fees for the additional young chefs attendees.

- YCCs will just have to provide for the registration fees for the APF (16 Sep) at $95 USD per person. Chef Association Malaysia / Youth Chef Club Malaysia kindly covered the cost of the Young Chefs Program on 15 Sep.  YCCs will be required to make their own arrangements for their travel and accommodations, together with their chefs association. 

- Please find attached registration form. The registration fees for the APF includes welcome coffee/tea, morning tea break, lunch and afternoon tea break.
- Please let Sanjay and I know and register ASAP with Chef KK Yau  <kokkheong.yau@dorsettregency.com.my>, as CAM would need to know the number of people attending to facilitate booking the KLCC convention centre and for Chef Rick to make necessary preparations of the program.
