NYSAND President's Message

It was an amazing 2017-2018 membership year! It is with great pleasure that I accept the "presidential gavel" from Julie Raway and represent your leadership for the 2018-2019 term. The New York State Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (NYSAND) calendar year officially began June 1st.

Thank you all for choosing to be a part of NYSAND. I am honored to represent nutrition and dietetic professionals, including students and retirees, from all around New York State. We have a great team of leaders who are volunteering many hours in order to continue to advance our great association and profession. If you are ever interested in taking on a leadership role, please reach out to me anytime throughout this upcoming calendar year.

Be sure to mark your calendars for NYSAND's next Annual Meeting & Expo (AME 2019), located in Syracuse, New York. The event's planning team is already hard at work, curating a fun and informative conference that will meet your professional needs while considering convenience to location, time, and cost. Please mark your calendars for April 5th and 6th, 2019. It's going to be an exciting and high-impact networking conference that will build Pathways to Success! More details will be available through the AME 2019 webpage in upcoming months.
