As we begin the 2014-15 year, I extend a warm welcome to new and returning Research DPG members! Our Executive Committee team includes Chair-Elect Karin Pennington, Past Chair Nancy Emenaker, Secretary Lauri Byerley, Treasurer Elizabeth Reverri, Nominating Committee Chair Sabrina Trudo, and I as Chair. New committee chairs have been appointed and some positions are soon to be filled. Our Executive Committee is committed to continuing activities and collaborations that enhance the relevance and visibility of the Research DPG and more importantly, benefit the members. This year will be focused on a number of initiatives including updating our website with a modern look and expanded content, enhancing our research expertise through a new series of webinars, and expanding outreach to students.
I hope to meet many Research DPG members at the Food &Nutrition Conference & Expo (FNCE) 2014 being held in Atlanta, GA on October 18-21. You will be learning more about the Research DPG activities planned for FNCE in upcoming eblasts but mark your calendar for the following events:

As I work with the many members of the Research DPG, whether elected officers or appointed committee members, I am very thankful for these volunteers who generously give their time and talents. I especially want to thank the outgoing Chair, Nancy Emenaker, and the other outgoing Executive Committee members for their many contributions. The Executive Committee is continually working to enhance benefits to members. I welcome suggestions of potential ways we can serve you better. I look forward to serving you for the next year.
