NOTICE OF THE BANT AGM & CONFERENCE 2019

We are delighted to inform you that BANT’s Annual General Meeting will take place on Saturday March 23rd 2019 at a Mary Ward House, 5-7 Tavistock Place, London WC1H 9SN from 9.30am.

Following on with our tradition, we have another exciting and full agenda reporting on key achievements and future plans to further promote the standing of our profession and the recognition of BANT Registered Nutrition Practitioners in 2019.

2018 has seen the growth of reach and scope of Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine and it is even more important now for BANT to keep abreast of professional and regulatory developments that are key to the future of our practice and success of our members. BANT Nutrition Practitioners have been practising Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine for over 20 years and as the leading professional association in this field, BANT is invested in ensuring the standing of the profession and its members for the future. In early 2018 BANT changed its name to British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine to further align with this emerging field of practice that so well describes what we do, and better explains to the public the practice.

HAPPY FESTIVE SEASON TO OUR WONDERFUL BANT MEMBERS!

As we approach the end of the year, BANT Council would like to thank you very much for your ongoing support for the work that we’ve carried out over the last 12 months!

BANT’s ultimate aim is to support its members. This year we have done that by consolidating our presence in the emerging Lifestyle Medicine space, thanks to our name change to British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine. BANT has also worked to strengthen its position at the heart of the nutrition debate going forward by being fully engaged with stakeholders, as well as regulatory and professional bodies.

Additionally, BANT volunteers and managers have been engaged in projects that further support BANT strategic objectives by increasing media presence and promoting the profession and our members. Supporting the professional standing of BANT members with additional CPD resources, Regional Events, Professional Supervision opportunities and continued PPC (Professional Practice Committee) support is also part of BANT’s commitment to its members.

2019 is going to be a very exciting and busy time for BANT, the profession and the UK in general. We look forward to continuing to work with and for you to further focus our efforts so that we can continue to develop as BANT Nutrition Practitioners.
