The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) partnered with the American Conference Institute (ACI) to co-present the Third Annual Legal, Regulatory and Compliance Forum on Dietary Supplements on June 24 and 25 at The Carlton Hotel in New York.
The conference is a forum for the dietary supplements industry, from regulatory executives to quality control (QC) and compliance managers, to convene for discussions of legal, regulatory and compliance issues that impact business decisions and long-term strategies.
For the 2015 forum, ACI and CRN are collaborating to develop the program and gather the best industry authorities to address the challenges impacting supplement manufacturers in today’s marketplace.
Internationally, the Council for Responsible Nutrition-International (CRN-I), the international arm of the U.S.-based Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), announced a new dues structure associated with more member benefits, making CRN-I membership more accessible to a broader range of companies.
Annual membership fees begin at USD $1,000 for basic membership, going to $10,000 for those companies who wish to have a board-level role. Companies who join CRN-I at the $1,000 level are entitled to the following benefits: one complimentary registration for the annual CRN-I Scientific Symposium and additional discounted registrations to the event for others in the company; access to a CRN-I quarterly newsletter; use of the CRN-I membership logo on company websites; and immediate access to CRN-I proceedings or other CRN-I publications.
Companies who join at the $10,000 level receive a seat on the Managing Board. Board members elect the CRN-I officers and help shape the association’s strategic direction and priorities and content for the annual scientific symposium. In addition, these companies receive three complimentary registrations for the annual scientific symposium as well as the other benefits provided to all members.
CRN-I is offering free membership to academicians (employed full-time by an educational institution and who are not working for companies in the industry) and regulators. Members at this level will be given consideration as speakers for CRN-I’s scientific symposium and other potential events, as well as all the benefits of basic CRN-I membership, including complimentary registration to the scientific symposium, newsletter and access to publications.
