As dietetic professionals, it’s in our best interests to do what we can to represent and promote our great work and the wider profession. This often means widening our social circles, our reach and our influence, and taking advantage of every possible networking opportunity.

With almost 10,000 members, the BDA member community has a strong and vital voice, and members are invited and encouraged to network, share knowledge and best practice and raise awareness of what's new across the profession.


Log in to your My BDA online personal profile area and update your details, join a BDA Specialist Group and tell us your areas of interest or expertise. Don't forget to let us know when you've moved job, location or got married!

Members' Forum

Our Members' Forum is a great way to network or ask a question in a closed environment dedicated to the dietetic profession. Many of our specialist groups have active threads and discussion areas to share updates across the specialist area.


Join the conversation and use the evidence-base to ensure the expert dietetic voice is heard and counteract the growing 'noise' on social media. Like, connect, share and follow us and your dietetic peers across a variety of social channels. Utilise the power of social to raise awareness of the impact and value of the dietetic profession.


With over 1,000 members undertaking vital volunteer roles for us and gaining invaluable experience and CPD in return, why not take a look at what opportunities are out there and how you can get involved?
