Chaîne des Rôtisseur Ribbons and Ranks
 

 

 
 
 

Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Membership Ribbons and Ranks

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.

Pin Placement  

A: The Nameplate should be worn mounted across the chain on the right side of the Chaîne ribbon near the top of the chain.

B:  The Brillat-Savarin pin should be worn on the right side of the Chaîne ribbon about half way down the chain and outside of the chain.

C: The Société Mondiale du Vin Tastevin should be worn on the right side of the Chaîne ribbon about half way down the chain and outside of the chain. 

D:  The Flag Shield Patch differentiates a USA member from a member from another country.

E:  The Commandeur Pin should be worn mounted across the chain on the left side of the Chaîne ribbon near the top of the chain.

F:  The Conseil d'Honneur Pin should be worn on the left side of the Chaîne ribbon near the top outside the chain. If a Commandeur pin is worn as well, the Conseil d'Honneur pin should be below it.

G:  Badges of Office designate local, regional, and national officers, active or honorary and should be worn on the left side of the Chaîne ribbon about half way down the chain and outside of the chain.

H:  Professional Badges reflect professional ranks and should be worn in the same position as Badges of Office. When both are worn, the Professional Badge is worn beneath the Badge of Office.

Event pins are fun to collect and wear, particularly those of recently attended events, but be sure they don't crowd important badges
