House of Delegates Meeting
Fall 2016

The House of Delegates conduct its fall 2016 meeting prior to FNCE in Boston.   Here is the report from our OkAND Delegate:

The Fall 2016 House of Delegates (HOD) Meeting was held in Boston on October 14th and 15th.  This meeting was different than past meetings because it included training for delegates.  The training session centered around learning how to use the Appreciative Inquiry process to be able to gather better information from constituents on mega issues of our profession.   As your delegate I want to be able to share with the HOD what Oklahoma RDNs and DTRs thoughts, opinions and ideas are about issues facing our profession, and this training gave me a new strategy and the tools to be better at this!   

The HOD also conducted a dialogue session on wellness and prevention that included identifying opportunities for nutrition professionals in the area of wellness and prevention, identifying skills and strengths needed by practitioners, affirming and promoting the role of RDN/DTR in wellness and prevention, and engaging constituents in ongoing conversations to build strategies for wellness and prevention.  Following the meeting, I will be engaging in conversations in our state about what we want the future of wellness and prevention to look like in Oklahoma and the role of credentialed food and nutrition practitioners in this future.   More communication will be coming on this process, and I want to your ideas and dreams about the future of wellness and prevention!
