Become a Member

Membership to Les Dames d’Escoffier is by invitation only. Each prospective member must be recommended and sponsored by a Dame who is currently in good standing in the Charleston chapter. As such, the number of candidates accepted each year is limited.

To be eligible for consideration, potential candidates must:

  • Have achieved distinction and high professional stature in her career and be knowledgeable in the areas of food, beverage, and hospitality.
  • Be actively employed in the field with a minimum of 5 years of professional experience.
  • Support the mission of the Charleston Chapter of LDEI.

With the membership process held once per year in the late spring, potential candidates who meet this criteria are encouraged to attend several of our events, as a guest of a Dame.  Click here for upcoming events.
