Message from the President
Welcome to the 2015-2016 South Texas Academy membership year! Your STAND board has been hard at work this summer planning an exciting year of educational and networking opportunities! Please join us at the Kick-off Meeting on Friday, August 21st for a great presentation and to learn more about upcoming STAND events and ways to get involved.
I am excited to announce that at the 2015 Texas Academy Leadership Training in Fort Worth, STAND was recognized with the Legislative Action Award for our participation in various legislative activities throughout 2014-2015. A big shout out to Emily Bitetto, our Legislative Chair, and STAND members for volunteering at these events. The award is a $500 gift that will go toward enhancing our presence at future legislative events and activities. Great work, team!
I want to take this opportunity to thank past-president, Anna Macnak, for doing such an amazing job organizing and coordinating STAND events. As President, I look forward to working closely with our South Texas Academy members and partner organizations to continue to offer great continuing education and networking opportunities that really showcase the diversity of the dietetics field, and highlight the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist as the nutrition experts in the community. I am very passionate about promoting the South Texas Academy's mission, which is to be the advocate of the dietetics profession serving the public through the promotion of optimal nutrition, health and well-being.
Thanks again for all the hard work that you do to promote health and wellness in the community. I look forward to seeing you at the August 21st Kick-off Meeting.
