The deadline to submit applications for the Association’s Executive Committee (EC) has now been extended to 7 July at 23:59 GMT. We have previously announced that two positions in the EC are or will be soon vacant. The two positions are President, after the completion of the term of office of Barrie Margetts, and Professional Affairs Secretary, after the retirement from office of Roger Hughes. Considering the low number of applications received, and to give Association members more opportunity to consider taking an active role in the Association, the EC decided to extend the deadline.Read More

We are pleased to announce that a new, automated membership system has just been implemented, to facilitate the process of membership renewal, as well as membership application for those who are not yet members. At a first stage, both existing members who renew and new members will be prompted to complete a personal information form with updated contact details, as well as a conflict of interest declaration. We invite you to renew your membership for 2014, or become a member.
You can now choose to join/renew for one or three years, and will receive a username and password that you can use to login to a members-only area. By renewing your membership, you will be eligible to apply for our professional certification scheme and become a Certified Public Health Nutritionist (cPHN). Your membership will give you discounted rates for our upcoming conferences, like the next one happening in September this year in Oxford, UK.Read More
