Strategic Plan 2023-2024

A key role of the NOBIDAN incoming Chair, working with the Executive Committee, is to set the direction for the organization.  The Board prioritizes programs, initiatives, and goals to which are in line with the Academy, and is always working proactively to put into place plans to accomplish the focus areas.  Some of the initiatives and goals include:

  • Maximize member engagement.

  • Work with the Academy, and allies to increase awareness of the profession of Nutrition and Dietetics, and NOBIDAN.

  • Maximize benefits to all members, including mentoring, the RD exam study group, scholarships, and national awards in recognition of outstanding members’ professional accomplishments.

  • Support Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and other organizations that serve students of African descent pursuing a career in Nutrition & Dietetics.

  • Support Professional Development of members through achieving and maintaining an active Speaker Bureau and actively engaging in collaborative research projects. Over the next year, you will see NOBIDAN meaningfully address each priority.

This strategic plan is designed to continue projects begun under past chairs to position NOBIDAN as a resource, a leader, an advocate, and a voice for the future.
