“The Workshop: CRN’s Day of Science" and “The Conference: CRN’s Annual Symposium for the Dietary Supplement Industry" will take place on Nov. 5 through Nov. 8 at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel in Dana Point, California.
John Blair, CRN chairman, The Juice Plus+ Company, appointed Michelle Stout, regulatory policy director at Amway/Nutrilite, and a member of CRN’s board of directors, as the 2014 conference chair.
The workshop is a full-day symposium on Nov. 5 that will bring together top scientific experts to focus on relevant dietary supplement/nutrition science, and it will culminate into an evening networking reception that also serves as the opening event for the conference. With two full days of educational sessions and thought-provoking speakers, the conference will end on Saturday morning after a featured breakfast 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," Stout said. “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."
Attendees can register for the workshop/conference package, the workshop only, the conference only, or the workshop and first day of the conference.
Last year, CRN featured the guest speaker Todd Henry, author, founder and CEO of Accidental Creative. Henry spoke about his expertise on defining challenges, embracing curiosity and stepping out of the comfort zone to reach a new found clarity of achieving goals.
