It is an honor to serve as your President for this coming year, and I'm grateful to the passionate, forward-thinking leaders I've served under as President-elect. Our state continually produces national leaders within the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, which includes the immediate past-President, Dr. Evelyn Crayton. Be PROUD of ALABAMA's voice on the National leadership level! Our state continually excels in national public policy and advocacy leadership. Be PROUD of ALABAMA'S voice on the state leadership level as well! This year, we will build on our membership advocacy (that's YOU!) and take it to the next level of excellence, too.
Our theme for this coming year is "Nutrition in Motion: Let's M.O.V.E.!"
Together, we will ... M: MAXIMIZE Your MEMBERSHIP
O: (Be) OPEN to OPPORTUNITIES
V: (Find) VALUE in VOLUNTEERING
E: (Provide) EXCELLENCE in EDUCATION
I would like to send a special welcome to our Jr ALDA Board members, and thank you for your willingness to volunteer to make a difference. The ALDA Board of Directors will work closely with our Jr. ALDA Board and Public Relations team to strengthen our voice, our ALABAMA RD voice, our ADVOCACY voice. Get ready for the initiation of our Twitter Tree to focus our grass roots efforts to create a united, and prominent, voice for our state and for our profession.
Thank you for this opportunity to serve our membership. Let’s join together in our volunteer efforts to give back to the profession we love so much - Nutrition in Motion, at its best!
