Planning your New Year’s Goals

As you look to the new year and goals you may want to accomplish in 2015, don’t forget to add professional development to your list.  Personally, I have always lived on the business and industry side of nutrition, and an interest in expanding my culinary skill originally brought me to the Food & Culinary Professionals DPG.  For this reason, I’m thrilled to be attending my first FCP Culinary Workshop in Napa this March.  It’s a great event to put on your list for professional development in 2015 as the presentations will address key trends impacting our work as dietitians and the hands-on sessions are sure to help you improve your culinary skills no matter your starting point.

Over the past two years, we’ve seen a significant uptick in regulatory activity.  The new menu labeling regulations impact not only restaurants, but some grocery stores as well.  As labeling laws continue to expand to all food purchase situations, it’s vital that dietitians understand the ins and outs of these rules.  To expand your regulatory expertise, visit the newly created FCP resource page and watch for future announcements of webinars on this topic.

In addition, FCP offers members book clubs, webinars, and CPEU articles in our newsletter – everything you need to meet your professional development goals in 2015!

Happy New Year!
