The Annual Meeting is the premier educational and networking event for nutrition professionals in Maryland and is sponsored annually by MAND. The annual meeting takes place at The Conference Center at the Maritime Institute in Linthicum Heights, Maryland. We typically expect up to 200-250 nutrition professionals in attendance.

MAND is a non-profit organization that strives to optimize the health and well-being of Marylanders through food and nutrition; and to empower members to be Maryland’s food and nutrition leaders. MAND achieves these objectives through political activism, student mentorship, continuing education, networking opportunities and community involvement.

The annual planning committee is currently looking for speakers for next year's meeting. Presentation proposals should reflect cutting edge research and practical applications. Only advanced sessions (Academy level II or III) in acceptable topic areas will be accepted. Up to two (2) proposals per individual or group will be reviewed.

Estimates for both are part of the submission process.
