Plan to Vote in the AND Election!
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics National Election takes place February 1 through February 22.
Project Vote is back for the 2015 election. Affiliates have been grouped by membership into four categories (Maryland is in Category 3). The affiliate with the highest percentage of voters in their category will receive a free registration to FNCE® 2015 in Nashville, Tennessee. In 2014, Missouri won our category with only 20.09% of their members voting. Maryland can certainly surpass that number as well as the percent of MAND Members who have voted in recent AND Elections. Here are MAND statistics from past elections:
2011 - 11.54%, 2012 - 13.57%, 2013 - 15.08%, 2014 - 10.49%
Lets work toward a goal of 50% or more of MAND members voting this year!
