2014 Annual Conference
Greetings NDNC Members,
We are so excited to share a preview of the 2014 NDAND/NDNC Joint Conference “Creating Healthy Lives & Communities,” taking place April 23-24, 2014 at the Ramada Plaza Suites in Fargo. This joint venture between the North Dakota Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics and North Dakota Nutrition Council is a wonderful opportunity to provide both groups a fantastic conference, chance to network with a variety of nutrition professionals, and also a lot of fun!
The “official” NDNC conference will be held Wednesday, April 23 through Thursday, April 24, concluding at 12:30 PM. NDNC members are invited to register and stay for the additional Thursday afternoon sessions. You will note on the agenda (see below) that the Thursday lunch is the NDAND membership meeting/lunch. NDNC members who are not NDAND members and register for the full conference will have lunch provided this day.
In addition to meeting jointly with NDAND, we appreciate the opportunity to combine resources and share the Thursday morning keynote speaker, Dr. David Katz, with the 2014 Healthy Schools Summit, which will also be meeting at the Ramada Hotel on Thursday, April 24. We will also share the morning break with this group and lunch for those who register for Thursday afternoon and not attending the NDAND member meeting.
Here you will find a CONFERENCE AGENDA. Please note we are working to finalize speaker contracts to confirm spelling, titles, credentials and session topics. Please excuse any errors or missing information at this time.
Note: All conference registration will be online and open until April 17, 2014.
Finally, HERE is a list of hotels that have rooms blocked at a discounted conference rate. There are a limited number of rooms blocked at the Ramada Plaza Suites, but the rooms at the Expressway Inn & Suites are very nice and just a short walk from the Ramada (our conference location).
Again, we hope you are excited for the conference that is being planned for you and look forward to seeing you in April! If you have any questions feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
