Branching Out...New Connections New Directions

 

I am honored to be serving as your current president of FAND.

 

Together we will continue to help our organization grow.   This year's theme is Branching Out...New Connections New Directions. We will establish new relationships with more healthcare professionals, legislators and local community leaders.  Our amazing leadership team is working diligently to engage our members and take our association to the next level. 

 

Last month over 200 Florida RDs and students attended FNCE in Boston. We proudly supported our very own Lucille Beseler the current Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics President. For the first time, FAND sold dry fit shirts in the member showcase.  Sales from the T-shirts will go towards maintaining our legislative activities.

 

Your 2016-2017 FNCE team is already in full force planning for the academy's 100th year anniversary in Chicago as we start to transition into our second century.

 

We have a very exciting year planned for our members. The Hands on Physical Assessment Mini-symposium is returning based on member feedback. The meetings were previously held in South Florida and Jacksonville.  We are hitting the road and headed to Lakeland next.   Mark your calendar for Saturday, December 3rd at Keiser University in Lakeland. (registration can be found here)

 

Due to the request of many members we will be exploring other hot topics for 2017. 

More info coming soon!

 

Our website is receiving a make over!  Our website team is working diligently on offering both a professional and consumer page.  This will be a great avenue for anyone who needs to obtain credible nutrition information.  Check out the new store section on the FAND website for our popular t-shirts for sale and spread the word amongst your professional friends and family! They make great holiday gifts!  

 

Don't forget about our diet manual! Your one stop shop for the most up to date diet and nutrition information. Order the print version by the end of February and you will receive the 2017 edition at 2015 prices.

 

Together we will successfully move in new directions.

Feel free to contact me by email anytime cwigutow@aol.com

Your time and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

 

Wishing you and your family a joyous Thanksgiving and a safe holiday season.

 

Looking forward to Branching Out!

I am honored to serve as your president for the upcoming year.  Together we will help our organization grow. This year’s theme is Branching Out…New Connections and New Directions. Let’s establish new relationships with more healthcare professionals, legislators and local community leaders. 

I am excited to announce the completion of our first strategic planning committee meeting, which occurred last weekend.  Our leaders are energized and ready to enact our goals.  Branding and visual communication is a hot topic.  We are working on updating our website and adding new resources. The fundraising and sponsorship team is driven to create new funding initiatives.  We have many things planned for the upcoming year.   There will be several mini symposiums throughout the state in addition to our highly anticipated annual meeting.  The political policy and membership teams are all working very hard as well.  Look out for further updates in our upcoming newsletter.

I’ve always loved the quote by Helen Keller, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”  Feel free to contact me by email anytime at cwigutow@aol.com.  Your time and suggestions are greatly appreciated.  Together we will strive to take our organization to the next level!

Looking forward to Branching Out!
