President’s Message

August 2017

Wow!!  It’s already August.  I can’t believe the kids will be back in school very soon and our schedules will be back in full swing.  Speaking of schedules, I want to remind you of some upcoming dates to put on your calendar:

  • CDR dues must be paid by August 31st.
  • FNCE takes place October 21-24 in Chicago, IL.
  • The VAND 89th Annual Meeting will be held April 8-10, 2018 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Richmond-Midlothian, in the Greater Richmond District.

The Annual Meeting Planning Committee is working hard on organizing the 2018 Annual Meeting and they welcome any volunteers to assist them.  Please contact Stephanie Stockslager, Annual Meeting Planning Chair, at if you are able to contribute some time to make the meeting a success.

Lastly, Nancy Farrell, MS, RDN, FAND, VAND Representative to the Governor’s Council on Bridging the Nutrition Divide, has shared a new brochure regarding tax credits for VA Farmers, from the Federation of Virginia Food Banks.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Health and Happiness,

Crista Galvin-Cox, MS, RD, FAND
