Morgan Weise

Which committee did you serve on for the first rotation?
Fundraising Committee

What has been your favorite experience so far?
My favorite experience so far has been able to help brainstorm ideas for a fundraiser with the Foundation for next year. Our main objective was to come up with ideas that would entice students to become involved with the Foundation and participate in the fundraiser. It was so exciting to be a part of planning this and see some of the steps that go into planning a fundraiser on such a large scale.

What benefits has the program brought you?
The main benefit this program has brought me is networking while getting an introduction to the different sectors of Illinois Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. I am getting to meet a wide variety of professionals in the Nutrition and Dietetics world that I would not have been able to meet and work with otherwise. I feel so blessed to be able to interact with and learn from everyone.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years, I hope to be working as a Registered Dietitian, either in the clinical or community setting, and serving on any committee that I can with the Academy at the District or State level. I love networking and having extra responsibilities outside of a day-to-day job. I think serving on committees would be the best way to gain valuable leadership experience, as well as learn about how the Academy operates within the different levels.
