Aloha members,

Your association is already off to a great start for the new term and we’ve already had two very productive Board meetings. If you’d like to attend one of our future Board meetings, we welcome you. Click here for dates and times.

Here are the highlights of what we’ve been working on:

1. Name Change

The Board of Directors have voted to change our name from Hawai‘i Dietetic Association to Hawai‘i Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Forty-four other states have changed their names to align with the Academy. We’ll be HAND for short and we are holding a contest for a new logo design.

2. HAND Logo Contest Information (Submission deadline extended to December 18, 2015!)

3. Bylaws Revision
HAND bylaws have been revised to change our name, update Board membership and other information. View the proposed Bylaws here.


Justin Miyashiro
2015-2016 President, Hawai‘i Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics
