Academy Programs: Membership
Affiliates, DPGs and MIGs are encouraged to create events that focus on reaching one of three potential member groups: DPD graduates not pursuing an internship, those in allied health professions or practicing dietetics internationally, and those with advanced degrees in food, nutrition and/or dietetics. Applications are available online by clicking here with a due date of March 1, 2021. The top six applications will receive $500 to support their programs. Application coming soon.
Recruitment and Retention Toolkit
The Career Starter Dues Program offers reduced dues rates for members in their first five years of Active category membership eligibility. The graduated dues are offered in a tiered structure based on the RDN or NDTR eligibility date on file with the Commission on Dietetics Registration (CDR). Dues increase incrementally each year for up to five years to help members get established in the profession. Graduation date can be used in lieu of eligibility date for those who do not pursue a CDR credential.
Membership Prospect Contact Information Form
A form for membership chairs of affiliates, DPGs, MIGs, and Academy Groups as well as educational institutions, diversity liaisons and student liaisons to keep track of contact information for prospective members.

Dues General Information
Q: What is the membership year? When does membership lapse?
A: The Academy’s membership year runs from June 1 through May 31 regardless of when a person joins. If membership dues are not paid by May 31, the member is considered a non-renewing member. The non-renewing member will no longer receive any Academy member benefits and will not be able to access the Academy’s member-only website, or hold membership in an affiliate, DPG, MIG or NDEP, etc. When membership lapses and that non-member wishes to rejoin, a $25 processing fee is accessed.
