Business and Industry

Temporarily paused for the 2022-2023 year.  This network will not be available for purchase.

With a range of members who work in sales, marketing, public relations, communications, media, brand development, regulatory affairs, foodservice and entrepreneurial roles, this network is for dietitians who use their nutrition-based knowledge in non-traditional jobs. The goal of the Business & Industry Network (DCBIN) is to create a forum for dietitians to feel connected with like-minded business and industry dietitians. We provide a number of in-person events each year for both networking and educational purposes. 

Who should join this network? 
If you are a dietitian working in sales, marketing, public relations, communications, media, brand development, regulatory affairs, foodservice, an entrepreneurial role, or use your nutrition knowledge in a non-traditional role, you will likely benefit from being part of DCBIN. Students or dietitians in a career transition who are looking for unique roles are always welcome too!
