About the AANC

If Nutritional and Dietary Consultants are ever to achieve the professional recognition they so justly deserve, they must consolidate their numbers through a strong, professional, organized association.

The American Association of Nutritional Consultants is your professional association combating public ignorance and adverse legislation. The A.A.N.C. is working tirelessly to enhance the prestige and professional status of all its members.

The A.A.N.C. was founded in 1985 to assist nutritional professionals in achieving more recognition through board certification. The A.A.N.C. is dedicated to preserving the right of unlicensed nutritional professionals to provide nutritional education to individuals to improve their overall health and wellbeing. We also seek to avoid legislation that would limit the number of health professionals, or hinder the education of consumers in the vast array of choices available for their healthcare.

When you display the prestigious AANC Membership Certificate on your wall, you make clients, patients, and professional colleagues aware of your commitment to the high standards of professional competence in nutritional counseling, demonstrating your dedication to the cause of good health through nutrition.

As well as the prestige of belonging to a nationally recognized organization, there are many direct, personal and financial benefits to be enjoyed as a member of AANC.
