About Us

The Capital Area of Wisconsin Chapter of NACE was founded in 2004 by a group of Madison Area Catering and event professionals who wanted to start their own chapter after many of them were members of The Southern Wisconsin Chapter in the Milwaukee area. We are committed to sharing ideas and enhancing our careers with networking, building relationships and educational meetings. The Capital Area Caterers have members from Madison, Middleton, Brown Deer, Janesville and Wisconsin Dells.

The National Association for Catering and Events, the oldest and largest catering association in the world, encompasses all aspects of the catering industry. Dedicated to promoting career success for its members and the professionalism of the industry, NACE offers educational programs, professional certification, chapter initiatives, networking opportunities, recognition and awards programs, a job bank, community service projects and the industry’s most prestigious annual conference. In helping its members enhance their business and careers, NACE helps the industry reach its highest potential.
