Who are your district leaders?

Hello San Diego! I hope everyone is navigating the back-to-school process with as much ease as possible.  The board has started making plans for next year’s events so be sure to check the Linkage for news about upcoming activities and other announcements over the coming year. I would like to give a huge shout out to the many board and district members who have recently taken the RD exam and are now credentialed professionals. Congratulations!

As we head into a new district year, we have officially begun our Membership Drive.  If you have friends, colleagues or know other RDs who are not members, invite them to join. We have one of the most active districts in the state and the education committee has some upcoming events planned that appeal to professionals in all areas of dietetics practice. And be sure to join us for our social events-we’re a lot of fun to spend time with!

I hope to see all of you at our upcoming social event in September (details following). It is always a lot of fun and a great time to get to know new members.
