He also emphasized his dedication to the College's goals and milestones, as outlined in the Strategic Plan 2020-25.

“As a member of the dietetics profession, I’m very proud of the College’s track record as a regulator, and the work that Board does in the name of public protection,” said Denis. “The Board supports the operations of the College to ensure that the public is served by dietitians who are committed to delivering safe, ethical and competent dietetic services.”

The newly elected Executive Committee members of Council for 2024-2025 are:
