Elections of Registered Dietitians to Council take place every year. Registered Dietitians who are in good standing with the College can be nominated and can vote in these elections.
RD participation is at the heart of being a self-governed profession and essential in assuring that professional standards and all related products and activities respond to dietetic practice today. Contact the College to find out more about the nomination and election process.
