A note to our NYSAND Community, our Sponsors and our Speakers: 

The New York State Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics is excited to announce that the 2021 Annual Meeting & Expo will be a 100 percent virtual event.  Originally scheduled to take place in person at the Gideon Putnam Resort & Spa in Saratoga Springs, NY, the Annual Meeting & Expo Committee and NYSAND Leadership have looked to all options and decided to put all efforts into planning an all virtual event due to ongoing concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic.

The dates of the Annual Meeting & Expo will extend the experience from a high-impact 24-hour in person event to a more manageable 3-day virtual event taking place April 15-17, 2021. The AME Committee and NYSAND Staff are in the process of adapting the full schedule of educational programming, expo hours, and networking events into a program that will showcase all the benefits of attending AME, but without the uncertainty and risk that an in-person event currently presents.

Thank you,

The NYSAND Annual Meeting & Expo Chairs & Committee
