The 2013-2014 membership year with the Portland Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is coming to a close. What an honor to have the opportunity to lead this organization over the past year. I was very fortunate to work with such a motivated, proactive and passionate group of individuals that comprised this year's board.

Over the past year we doubled our income as well as our membership. We organized and offered 8 CPE units with various topics from fascinating speakers including public health, clinical nutrition, research updates, malnutrition updates, poster sessions from OHSU's dietetic interns, 2 film reviews, and two community volunteer events.

The 2014-2015 executive board is excited and energized for what next year will bring. But first, we will be taking a summer break and then regroup in August for our annual planning meeting. We look forward to seeing you in the fall!

Andrea Hamilton MS, RD
2013-14 Portland Academy President
