Frequently asked questions for those wondering how to nominate or to be nominated for a position and the election process once nominated.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is dedicated to providing members with opportunities to develop as leaders. If you or someone who you know is ready to lead, submit a nomination for a position serving the Academy, its members and professional community. For any questions about the Nominating Committee or nominations and elections, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Nominating Committee is a diverse group of active members with a variety of interests and practice areas. In addition to using the qualifications and skill sets for each position, the committee reviews each candidate’s biographical information and considers the practice, ethnic, gender and geographical representation needs at the time.
To protect the integrity of the nominating process, committee members must maintain total confidentiality and objectivity throughout the nominating process. Whether a nominee is self-nominated, nominated by another member or an Academy organizational unit, such as a DPG, MIG or affiliate, all nominees are given equal consideration.
