2020 Call for Speakers NOW OPEN

Speak at the Maryland Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics 2020 Annual Meeting 

The Maryland Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (MAND) is seeking presentation proposals for our 2020 Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting is the premier educational and networking event for nutrition professionals in Maryland. Over 250 nutrition professionals will be in attendance. The 2020 meeting will take place on Monday, March 23rd, 2020 at Martin’s West in Baltimore, Maryland.

The MAND Annual Meeting attracts nutrition professionals from diverse fields and, therefore, we are open to many topics pertaining to food, nutrition, or health. Presentation proposals should reflect cutting edge research and practical applications. Only advanced sessions (Academy level II or III) in acceptable topic areas will be accepted.

Our theme will be "Set Your Sights on Nutrition 2020". You may tailor your proposal to this theme if desired but we are not limiting proposals to this theme.

If you are interested in speaking at the meeting, please CLICK HERE to complete the online speaker proposal form. The deadline for proposals is Friday, November 8, 2019 at midnight EST. The deadline for proposals has been extended until Friday 11/22/19.  Any proposals received after this date will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis as determined by the Annual Planning Committee. Incomplete proposals will not be reviewed.

Up to two proposals per individual or group will be reviewed. Please do not submit more than two proposals. Proposals from individuals who have not presented at a previous MAND meeting are particularly encouraged. All conflicts of interest must be fully disclosed at time of proposal submission. Honorariums, travel and other fees are negotiated on a per speaker basis. Estimates for both are part of the submission process.

If you have any questions about or problems completing this form, please contact Liz Entin at lizzientin@gmail.com 

Selected speakers will be notified of their acceptance by mid-December.
