President's Message


We are grateful for your support

in keeping our profession alive and well.

Board Meeting Information

* Coming Soon *



Hello MAND members and happy spring! The spring marks the end of another MAND Board year and it’s been a pleasure to represent this great organization and its members as President. I hope you had a chance to attend our MAND Annual Conference-The Journey Forward! Packed with great speakers and opportunities to network, this year’s conference succeeded, despite being virtual, in bringing us all together as a community of nutrition professionals. We recognized our members in awarding the Outstanding Dietitian of the Year and the Recognized Young Dietitian of the Year. Congratulations to our recipients! We also need to recognize our hard working MAND Board Members who will be stepping down from their roles this spring. My thanks to Ria Saunders (Public Policy Coordinator), Leslie Ouellette (State Policy Representative), Mackenzie Clapp (Education Chair), and Maegan Perrault (Student Representative). Your dedication for the field of nutrition and dietetics is inspiring. Other Board Members are transitioning into new roles and we welcome their efforts as they begin a new Board year. My thanks to Kristine Kittridge (MAND Past-President) for all the support she provided during my tenure as President this year. Her mentorship was truly appreciated.  Please join me in welcoming Sue Sullivan as our incoming MAND President for the Board year 2022-2023. She already has many plans for MAND and I look forward to working with her in the upcoming year. Finally, thanks to MAND members for your trust in allowing me to be your President! I have enjoyed getting to know many of you and have developed wonderful friendships. I hope you will continue to support MAND and we thank you for being a member!


Mona Therrien, DCN, RD,  LD
