Leadership is both an art and a skill.  Kansas Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recognizes the responsibility to train their volunteers and to empower them to successfully complete their roles within the organization.

A Leadership Orientation or Retreat is offered annually to bring the volunteers and elected officers together for team building and strategic planning.  Each member is encouraged to embrace their role and to become part of the dynamic team.

Each year, KSAND sponsors the President Elect’s attendance at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Leadership Institute.  The Leadership Institute supports the Academy’s commitment to develop its members by ensuring they embody a leadership mindset for innovation, adaptability, empowerment and risk-taking.

2017 KSAND Leadership Retreat

At the beginning of June, the incoming and outgoing KSAND board met in Wichita for the annual leadership retreat, orientation and board meeting. This year, the board volunteered with The Lord’s Diner. The mission of The Lord’s Diner is “to serve a nutritious meal with dignity and respect to anyone who is hungry.” This organization has two locations in Wichita and and three food trucks, helping to feed over 2,500 meals a night (60% of whom are families). This was quite a humbling experience for everyone.
