Vote for the Chair of the Nominating Committe by May 7th
2020 BGAND Election
It is an honor to be considered for the BGAND Nominating Committee. I have been a member of BGAND for 16 years, ever since I moved back to my home state in 2004. The opportunity to serve and provide the best slate for future board members would be a privilege. I strongly believe in the value of the local dietetic associations for networking, continuing education, and advocacy.
Through my experiences of being on multiple board in the Lexington community, I believe I have the skills it takes to identify potential future board nominees based on abilities as well as the capacity for leadership growth. I believe I have what it takes to serve BGAND well through involvement with the Nominating Committee.
Professional participation in local affiliate chapters of The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is one of the most important tools we as practicing dietitians can utilize to further our profession. When we work collectively we become a stronger force that leads to better recognition and overall success for Registered Dietitians.
Only one person ran for President-Elect and Treasurer so they will automatically be elected. See more information about the new leaders below
