1. Attend 4 Proof Collective events per year. 

  • Events happen monthly, and are ticketed. On average, ticket prices are $20 and scholarships are available. 

2. Commit to host, co-host, or support one event annually. 

  • This can be hosting an event in your home, helping to cook for an event, moderating a panel, being a speaker, etc. There are many ways to host and support events at Proof. 

3. Agree to our strict RSVP and event cancellation policies. 

  • You must RSVP and purchase tickets in advance for events. 
  • If you cannot attend the event, you must cancel at least 48 hours in advance to get a refund. 
  • If you "no-show" to two events within the year, you are no longer considered an active member of the Proof Collective. 

We ask a lot of our committed, active Proof Members, and in exchange, you get a lot! The benefits of being an Active Member of Proof include:

  • Access to our awesome, supportive group of movin' and shakin' females in food - an entrusted, empowered female community of bad-ass food industry professionals, who connect openly and honestly about the challenges, successes, and everything-in-between of running food businesses. 
  • Being listed on the website - so you can add it to your long list of accomplishments!
  • Being part of the Facebook Group, so you can stay up to date with all things food related, and have an easy platform for connecting with fellow members. 
  • Invites to all of our events, all year long. From lectures, to round tables, to cocktail hours - you'll be the first on the list. 
  • Super Badass Swag Bag so you can show off your Proof status!

Proof welcomes all committed, dedicated, honest women in food regardless of race, sexual orientation, and background.
