Welcome


Welcome to CNM DPG!

It is official - Our Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics is now in its 2nd Century!  We have come a long way in the last 100 years as dietetics professionals and have so much more to do and offer as we move into this new century of practice.
 
Many exciting things are happening at the Academy level and within our CNM DPG.  The Academy unveiled it’s updated Mission, Vision, and Strategic Plan and we will be aligning our revised CNM DPG Strategic Plan accordingly (more to come on that in the future).
 
The Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics FNCE® 2017 was a huge success with over 12,000 attendees.  We had many CNM DPG members in attendance, both as learners and educators.  I had the pleasure of moderating our CNM DPG Spotlight on Handgrip Strength, presented by Terese Scollard (Chair-Elect) and Julie McGuire, which was well received by attendees (session handouts available through the FNCE® 2017 App and the referenced Toolkit to be uploaded to our CNM Member Resources page.)  Your Member Services Committee and Executive Committee (EC) was hard at work at FNCE®, manning the CNM DPG Showcase Booth as well as marketing the activities and the benefits of CNM membership via our social media sites.  Your EC met for a live mid-year session at FNCE®, reviewing the Strategic Plan, approving logistics for revising the CNM SOPP, discussing opportunities to enhance the CNM Member Resources webpage, as well as discussing many more opportunities to develop and support our fellow CNM DPG members.  As we are a subgroup of the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics, our Nutrition Informatics Committee met and reviewed/revised our Social Media Terms of Use and Netiquette Guidelines to align with the updated Academy version.  The revised version was sent via eblast and is also included in the monthly EML reminders, as well as posted on our CNM Member Webpage).
 
Our CNM DPG Annual Report for FY17 was submitted by Janel Welch, Past Chair, and is being distributed by October 31st - be on the lookout for this summary of our past year CNM DPG activities.  Thank you, Janel, for your leadership and support of our CNM DPG.
 
I hope to see everyone at our 2018 CNM Symposium in Albuquerque NM (March 15-17).
 
Regards,
