Tony Robbins says so eloquently, "There is a powerful driving force inside every human being that, once unleashed, can make any vision, dream, or desire a reality." Which is why our mission is to empower DBC members to be food and nutrition business and communications leaders.

In 2017, we celebrated our 40th anniversary of being a dietetic practice group the same year of the Academy’s centennial. Now, it’s time to focus on the next 40 years. Where will we be? What will DBC look like? What will the field of dietetics look like? It’s an exciting time and we’re happy to have you on this adventure with us.

DBC has a robust and diverse member base of influential decision-makers holding leadership positions within private practice, CPG companies, PR agencies, foodservice channels, restaurant industry, and even the supermarket sector. Our influence is vast reaching over 1,100 members across North America and many international countries with greater than 1/3 of members having over 26+ years’ experience.

DBC has many unique and exclusive benefits from which to take advantage of – from regional networking events to workshops to webinars and more. Check out the full list here!  And watch our member orientation video here.

Join us and volunteer – we’re a dynamic and powerful group of professionals, and welcome your expertise and value your input!  Similar to last year, Academy members can join dietetic practice groups and member interest groups between February 1 and April 30. Special pricing will be available for Academy members who have already joined or renewed their Academy membership for the 2019-2020 membership year to add new DPGs and MIGs between February 1 and April 30, 2019. Members can gain access to DPGs or MIGs for the remainder of the current 2018 – 2019 membership year and all of the upcoming 2019-2020 membership year ending May 31, 2020. Members should visit the My Groups in their My Academy profile to add new groups, or call the Academy’s Member Service Center at 800/877-1600, ext. 5000.
Or, simply renew your membership and take part in the many great things DBC has to offer.

I’ll leave you with, "Success isn't just about what you accomplish in your life; it's about what you inspire others to do." – Unknown. Join us on our journey to the next 40 years!

Have a healthy, active and awesome day!
