Established in 1976, the Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA) is the leading nutrition organisation in Australia. It is a not-for-profit, professional member association representing more than 5,700 dietitians and nutritionists, and nutrition scientists, constituting around 80 per cent of the dietetic workforce in Australia.
DAA supports its members and works broadly to improve the nutrition and health of Australians.
DAA is a national organisation with a head office in Canberra and state and territory branches. It is well-organised, structured and progressive, with an emphasis on excellence of practice and good governance. The dietetics profession is self-regulated with recognised high standards at a national level.
DAA members work together through the Association in a wide range of voluntary roles. The elected Board of Directors, made up of eight Directors, including a President and Vice-President, govern the Association.
The majority of DAA members are Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs). APDs have the qualifications and skills to provide expert nutrition and dietary advice. ‘APD’ is the only national credential recognised by the Australian Government, Medicare, the Department of Veterans Affairs and most private health funds as the quality standard for nutrition and dietetics services in Australia.
DAA: Advocating for better food, better health and wellbeing for all
The DAA Board (in consultation with DAA members) develops the Association’s Strategic Plan. A new Strategic Plan will be launched in 2015. DAA’s values are: professionalism, leadership, passion, integrity and expertise.
The Association’s current Strategic Plan has four goals:
The first two are focused directly on DAA members and providing member services, while the third and fourth are directed at advocacy and influence in the public domain both nationally and internationally. These goals are underpinned by a number of strategies.
