HOD Members Request Removal of Corporate Sponsors from HOD Meetings
In past years, corporate sponsors have had the opportunity to provide presentations to delegates during HOD gatherings. Spearheaded by HEN Delegate Angie Tagtow, the letter outlined the close alignment of corporate partner presentations and the meeting mega issues at recent HOD meetings which may have undue influence on the decisions that are made about the profession and organization.
The letter also included suggestions for strengthening integrity and transparency within the Academy’s corporate partner program.
The letter and response are provided below. If you have questions, please contact Angie Tagtow, MS, RD, LD, 2010-2013 HEN Delegate at email@example.com.
