We would like to congratulate Ms. Bianca Lok. Effective October 1, 2017, she will be taking on the role of L'Assistant Chef de Salle or L'Assistant de Salle for short. the L'Assistant de Salle is the deputy of the Chef de Salle. She is responsible for the duties delegated to her by the Chef when he is present; and the entirety of his duties when he is not. If there is any confusion about proper salle conduct from students, the Chef and L'Assistant de Salle are the authority on the subject.
