Dear FAND Membership,

It is an honor and privilege to serve as the leader of our Florida affiliate.  I chose ‘All In’ as my theme this year to truly send the message that it takes all of us working together to accomplish our goals and continue to propel our profession forward.  I am impressed with the level of engagement and dedication from our Board of Directors, Committee Chairs, District Leaders and Headquarters Team.  We had a successful strategy meeting to kick off our new year and there was an exciting energy in the room as we made plans for the upcoming year.  I hope you will stay connected on social media and through our newsletter and website, and I look forward to seeing you at one of the many events planned for the year including mini-symposiums, legislative day and FL FANS. 

I welcome your feedback and ideas as we prepare for a new decade of service, support and comradery as a community of nutrition professionals. 

Let’s go All In!!
