Welcome to the greatest year to be a DBC member!

Not only does 2017 mark the 100th anniversary of the Academy itself, but also the 40th anniversary of DBC – two amazing reasons to celebrate! 

While recognizing achievements has always been a part of our core leadership model, this year provides a pivotal opportunity to reflect on DBC’s rich history, and use this knowledge to inspire future strategy and direction.

Don’t miss out on this important year in DBC’s history.  For those of you new to or seeking to join Dietitians in Business & Communications, it won’t take long to realize DBC is an extraordinary practice group. 

Led by an executive team of Fortune 500 dietitians, business owners and communication experts, DBC is for anyone seeking to grow their business acumen and leadership potential.  As a member of DBC, you gain access to executives responsible for developing talent and growing the next generation of dietetic leaders.

A full list of benefits can be found on our benefits page.

Let’s be the best DBC ever together

DBC seeks to support the growth of its members and the broader dietetic profession.  To start, I challenge you to learn something new and uncomfortable this year with DBC as your guide.  For some, that might be sales.  For others, it could be contract or salary negotiation, conflict resolution or people management.  Secondly, I challenge you to get involved with DBC.  Many opportunities exist through volunteer work, content contribution or hosting a regional networking event.  We are open and excited to collaborate!   

Thank you for believing in this practice group and electing me to serve this community of professionals.  I look forward to building upon the great achievements made last year by Terri Raymond and the previous executive committees.  I can’t wait to collaborate with each of you this year and encourage you to exploit my contact information to reach out with ideas and questions. 

Becki Holmes, MS, RDN, LDN
DBC Chair, 2017-2018
