Nominations for affiliate awards are accepted by the Awards Chair each winter. Deadlines vary but typically all materials must be turned in by the end of March. Deadlines and general information is sent to MAND members via the newsletter and/or direct email each winter.
You can find information about the various Affiliate Awards on the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ eatrightpro.org website under the Leadership tab/Honors and Awards/Affiliate Awards. Before nominating a MAND member for an award, please consult our list of previous award winners to avoid duplicate nominations. MAND typically accepts award nominations in the following categories: Outstanding Dietitian of the Year, Recognized Dietetic Technician of the Year, Recognized Young Dietitian of the Year, Emerging Dietetic Leader and Outstanding Dietetics Students (usually one from Umaine and one from SMCC).
