What is the role of the Academy Delegate?

Your delegate represents you at the House of Delegates when issues about the profession are discussed.  Delegates meet in the fall and the spring in order to conduct business and mega issue dialogues.  Member input on these important topics is strongly encouraged.   

What is the House of Delegates and why should I care about it?

The House of Delegates (HOD) governs the profession.  Each state, almost all Dietetic Practice Groups, and area of practice are represented by one or more delegates for a total of 105 delegates.

What issues were discussed at the last House of Delegates Meeting?

The House of Delegates (HOD) conducted a dialogue on October 20, 2017 to address the mega issue question: How can nutrition and dietetics practitioners secure influential public health positions in institutions, organizations, and government bodies? Based on the dialogue, a series of guiding principles were identified related to actions needed:
  1. Public health nutrition is embedded in the Academy’s new strategic plan.
  2. Public health affects all areas of nutrition and dietetics practice.
  3. Individual members and the Academy need to work together to create and pursue opportunities that will help advance nutrition and dietetics practitioners to higher levels of public health leadership. In order to achieve our envisioned future, the work on the motion outcomes will continue over the next 3-5 years, and even beyond, to advance leadership roles in public health.
This motion lays the groundwork for moving us towards that future and includes action items for individual members, leaders, and various Academy organizational units.
