La Chaîne Members
Members of “La Chaîne” are classified as professional or non-professional. Professionals enter with
a rank based on their occupation or training, while Non-professionals normally enter with the rank
of Chevalier or Dame de la Chaîne.
Each member of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is awarded an appropriate ribbon, denoting rank, when he or
she is inducted or promoted.
Chaîne members are proud of their ribbons and enjoy wearing them! Members should wear their ribbons
at all Chaîne events unless noted. Not only do members then stand out from guests, but knowledgeable
members can tell ranks apart by noting the color(s) of the different ribbons.
Those selected to be officers wear special ribbons, with the color designating either operating
(green) or administrative (blue). Officers’ ribbons are sometimes edged with braid. Gold braid
indicates national service, silver braid indicates regional, and no braid indicates local.
