Check out what some of our members had to say about being involved in the districts!

“As a member of the Piedmont Dietetic Association for the last 4 years, I cannot stress enough how much this organization has done for me, first as a student, then as an intern, and now as an RD. We offer at least in-person 4 social/networking events, 2-3 free CE events (combination of virtual and in-person), a mentorship program, and a variety of fundraising/volunteer events every year.  Our members thoroughly enjoy getting to know other RDs and dietetic students in the Upstate, and many have been able to create meaningful professional relationships (and friendships!) as a result.”

"I highly value my membership to SCAND and to our district organization, CTDA, because it keeps me connected. I work in a nontraditional role in which I don't regularly see or work with other RD's, and, as I'm the only RD in my company, I don't have employer sponsored CE's. Being a part of SCAND and CTDA gives me the opportunity to still socialize and network with other RD's in my area and around the state, and earn CE's that keep me "in the know" of what is going on in other realms of nutrition and dietetics. It additionally gives me the opportunity to explore leadership roles as a member of the board and allows me to be eligible for awards on the local and state level that can boost my resume!" 

“I have been a member of CMDA since my internship days in 2016. Through CMDA I have met many RDs that have helped me navigate careers and professional decisions. I have built a network of colleagues who I can go to from guidance on clinical cases in my job. The camaraderie of CMDA has been a gift. The honest discussions around career changes, salaries, education requirements, and other challenges in the field is invaluable!”
