WHAT IS A CONVENTION CADET?
Convention Cadets is a student program for high-school teens that would like a more involved level of participation at BEMA’s Convention. The Convention Cadets program will provide a professional learning experience where students will develop new skills, learn about the baking industry, and assist with the practical work of hosting a BEMA Convention.
