Minnesota Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics- Twin Cities
The Minnesota Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics- Twin Cities (MAND-TC) is one of five districts of the Minnesota Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics. Current membership is approximately 150 members. Membership in the Academy and the Minnesota Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics is required to be a member of MAND-TC.
MAND-TC is excited to announce that this year, there will be no membership fees! Membership in MAND-TC will be automatically processed when Academy dues are paid. In order to better serve our members, we will be offering an ala carte plan to attend meetings. Rather than pay a flat yearly fee of $40, there will be a $10 entry fee for MAND members and $20 for non-MAND members due at each of the four education events held this year. It is our hope this format will be more convenient for all our members. There will be no membership application for 2013-2014.
