The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), the dietary supplement industry’s leading trade association, has opened registration for the industry’s popular educational/networking events—The Workshop: CRN’s Day of Science and The Conference: CRN’s Annual Symposium for the Dietary Supplement Industry—taking place Nov. 5 to 8 at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel in Dana Point, Calif.
Michelle Stout, regulatory policy director at Amway/Nutrilite, and a member of CRN’s Board of Directors, has been appointed as the 2014 Conference chair by CRN Chairman John Blair, The Juice Plus+ Company.
The Workshop, Nov. 5, is a full-day symposium bringing together top scientific experts to focus on relevant dietary supplement/nutrition science, and culminating in an evening networking reception which also serves as the opening event for The Conference. With two full days (Thursday and Friday) of educational sessions and thought-provoking speakers, The Conference will end on Saturday morning following a not-to-be-missed “Breakfast with...” speaker.
“The CRN events have developed a strong reputation for providing leaders in our industry with valuable updates, fresh perspectives and best practices across regulatory, legal, legislative, science and international disciplines,” said Ms. Stout. “This year at The Conference we will build on the success of last year’s event to provide an even broader look at critical industry and business issues, with hands-on, dynamic business and communications sessions. I am honored to serve as conference chair and look forward to welcoming participants to my home state of California.”
Attendees will have a choice of four flexible registration options: 1) The Workshop/The Conference package; 2) The Workshop only; 3) The Conference only; 4) The Workshop and first day of The Conference.
