    Administrative history

    A planning committee chaired by Juanita Arnold, Provincial Director of the Canadian Dietetic Association (CDA), met in April 1955 to draw up a provincial constitution to be submitted to the CDA. The Professional Dietitians Act (SNS, 1958, c. 114) established the Nova Scotia Dietitians Association (NSDA) as the licensing body to approve the qualification of prospective members and to keep a register of licensed members. Membership was established as necessary to practice as a dietitian in the province. The first meeting of the NSDA was held with 35 members present at the Lord Nelson Hotel in Halifax in 1958, with President Hazel Rowland presiding. The association formed with 51 charter members upon incorporation on 2 May 1958. The objects of the NSDA, as outlined in the 1973 Act, are to promote and improve the status of dietitians and improve professional knowledge and competence of members, as well as to regulate standards of training and practice.
