Meeting description:

The FNCE Conference gives dietetic professionals the unique opportunity to connect, collaborate, and build upon their career or client opportunities through networking. But you might secretly be thinking, how exactly does that happen and why do I have to network, because it’s not easy?

Join us for a gathering of fellow Dietetic Professionals on their way, or wishing they were on their way, to FNCE 2018 in Washington DC, for a meet up and to learn specific tips for networking and conference success. Stacey Dunn-Emke, MS, RDN, Owner of NutritionJobs, will present on the topic of Conference Networking, where you will learn mindset strategies for networking success, including the Readiness Mindset, Offer Mindset, and Engagement Mindset. Walk away with renewed excitement about attending FNCE with your Bay Area tribe and greeting new people and new opportunities with more confidence.

All are invited to mingle and learn together, even if you cannot attend FNCE this year. No awkward ice breakers. Refreshments and nibbles provided.

A wonderful informational session on Passive Income Pursuit and Pointers for RDNs by Sohailla Digsby, a Georgia RDN, on September 21st.

NYC Mini-Meeting – Sept 12, 2018

On September 12, NE members in the NYC area were treated to a special “Cocktails & Conversation” Mini-Meeting event sponsored by PepsiCo. The event was held at Bouley Test Kitchen and featured a panel discussion of RDs at various stages in their careers working with brands.

Moderator Keri Gans lead an engaging discussion and Q&A session featuring panelists Frances Largeman-Roth, Keri Glassman, Alissa Rumsey, Sammi Haber Brondo, and Chelsey Amer. 

DC Area Mini Meeting

Are you in the DC area and looking to grow your professional network or just connect with other dietitians in a casual setting? Nutrition Entrepreneurs DPG member Whitney Bateson is hosting a networking event for dietitians September 12th at Mission in Dupont Circle, and all are welcome!

The event theme is “The Business of Branding is Getting Personal.” Having a personal brand can be much more than just self-promotion.  It can be a personal and private exercise that establishes the confidence, credibility, and courage to prioritize what’s most important in your life. Join us for a discussion on the benefits of personal branding while networking with other dietitians!

Dallas NE meeting/Happy Hour – Thanks for Joining Us!

Dallas/Fort Worth dietitians met for an end of the summer Happy Hour and welcomed a fellow nutrition entrepreneur, Sohailla Digsby who’s from Georgia and was in town as a speaker for a fitness conference.

Chicago Mini Meeting – sponsored by PepsiCo’s North America Nutrition -August 2018

The Chicago mini meeting was AMAZING!

We had about 25 RDs there, plus the panelists. We had such great feedback on the quality of the panelists/conversation, and the need for more of these conversations.

Plus, the SWAG bag was on-point, so that helps. Dawn was also amazing (of course!).

Few more gems from our team:

  • Mary Russel came. She was so lovely, and encouraging.
  • Dawn: “this is by far the BEST mini meeting I’ve ever seen”
  • Few RDs I was speaking with: “I wish the Academy would do more of these types of partnerships, we all need to learn and grow and be more well-rounded, this was so helpful”
