NBAD Updates – April 28, 2021

Volunteer Opportunities
The Alliance of Canadian Dietetic Regulatory Bodies is seeking candidates for the Canadian Dietetic Registration Examination (CDRE) Exam Blueprint Committee and the Item Writing Committee (click on links for application forms). The deadline to apply is Monday, May 10, 2021.

Strategic Planning – To date, we have received 54 responses for the Strategic Plan Member Survey. The purpose of this survey is to help the NBAD assess how successful it has been in meeting its public protection mandate and achieving the goals we set out in the NBAD Strategic Plan. We also wish to know what else we could do to address any current and future challenges impacting the public protection and dietetics. Your feedback will be considered in planning our next strategic initiatives. We are asking members to complete the survey by May 15, 2021 (15-30 minutes depending on length of your answers): https://forms.gle/SsbYUUiy6J2mp6g2A 

Pre-Authorized Debit – To date, we have received 146 responses for the survey related to the option of pre-authorized debit payment for registration fees (debits collected in advance prior to renewal). To properly study this payment option, we are asking other members to complete this short 2-question survey: https://forms.gle/kq62x88cezwGhyyHA

Thank you to all who completed the surveys. We appreciate your feedback!
