2020 Elections

Academy election voting starts on Saturday February 1st and runs through Saturday February 15th.  It would be great if Maine took the win in Project Vote in the Affiliate category!  Project Vote is an incentive program to encourage members of Affiliates to engage in the Academy’s national election. Affiliates are categorized by membership number. The group in each category with the largest percentage of members who vote will be awarded one free registration to FNCE 2020. Follow the voting progress at www.eatright.org/elections and don’t forget to vote!  VOTE HERE!
