In June, the first draft of the Society’s Strategic Plan was circulated to a large number of nutrition stakeholders for review and feedback. We can now announce that, thanks to the inclusion of their expert and extremely valuable input, the full Strategic Plan can be read here. The Strategic Plan forms the bedrock of the Society’s operations and outlines the framework and values under which the Society can and will deliver against its numerous strategic goals.

Prioritized goals have been divided into sub-goals in the Strategic Plan and a number of Working Groups have already been initiated to develop and execute plans on how specific goals can be delivered. Currently these are led by board members with some founding member involvement, but in the not-too-distant future we want to foster engagement and participation from the wider membership to support us on the vast array of vital tasks that need to be undertaken to propel the understanding, expansion and use of IS forward.
