Innovation and Recognition

NE has a thriving history of high achievement! We like to recognize our dynamic and boundary-pushing group through both internal and external awards. Each year, NE names an Outstanding Nutrition Entrepreneur whom we believe embodies the characteristics of our organization through their dedication to the application of entrepreneurship. The awardee is provided with $1000 and is honored at the annual Networking Event at FNCE®! In addition to the Outstanding Nutrition Entrepreneur of the Year award, NE offers a Professional Development Dietetic Student Award. This award provides the opportunity for an NE student member to attend FNCE® and experience the inner-workings of our organization at the annual Executive Committee meeting, not to mention all of the networking events and professional development. The award is provided to a student who demonstrates a passion for innovation, entrepreneurship, and the craft of using nutrition in creative and interesting ways. Furthermore, NE submits nominations of its members to the Academy for national awards such as the Excellence in Practice Awards on an annual basis. We pride ourselves on being an organization of both giving and receiving, and therefore we encourage our members to nominate each other for awards through the website and many in-person events and meetings across the country!

Additional Networking Opportunities

NE Specialty Groups: Why join a specialty group? Specialty groups help define and build your market niche. Each of NE's Specialty Groups is designed to help bring together dietitians of similar interests, to provide a forum of networking and exchanging of ideas that will improve and build new skills. They are intended for beginners and advanced practice level dietitians as well as those thinking of starting a business or gaining employment in a related area.

  • Authors & Writers share information and provide guidance to their peers and aspiring authors. Through e-mail communication, authors have easy access to mentors who can help them write and promote their books, and enhance their writing careers.

  • Coaches create a forum for members interested in learning and sharing expertise about being a coach.

  • Corporate Wellness provides support and networking to NE members with a focus or interest in providing wellness and nutrition coaching programs directly to employees with services reimbursed by corporate endorsement.

  • Private Practice provides NE members with support and networking for those interested or already practicing as nutrition therapists in a private practice setting. Some clients may be interested in medical nutrition therapy for a specific medical problem, while others may want to seek professional nutrition advice to optimize performance in a sport or to prevent chronic disease.

  • Second Career Dietitians provides support and networking opportunities for NE members who are second career dietitians, second career students studying to become dietitians or dietitians who provide mentoring or other services in support of second career dietitians and students.

  • Speakers & Media share their experiences and help members improve their speaking and marketing skills. Aspiring speakers can learn about marketing and other business skills needed to become a paid speaker.
