Commitment to Transparency

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is committed to accountability through transparency and fiduciary responsibility. A high priority is ensuring Academy members have regular and timely access to information and a firm understanding of the Academy's operations and its ongoing strategic direction. To help meet this commitment to transparency, the Academy's Board of Directors communicates its actions, decisions, news, programs and initiatives to members and seeks stakeholders' input and feedback on the Academy's programs and processes.
