About Us

COGA focuses on providing programming, education, collaboration and networking within three primary sub communities: Fifty Plus (FPIND), Men (NOMIN) and Thirty and Under (TUND).

Each of these communities address unique needs for education and networking within their communities while also supporting each other to provide a collective voice within the Academy. 

COGA membership includes those with seasoned experience in dietetics or those who are new to their career; those re-entering the workforce or changing their career focus, and men in the profession. COGA supports its members to grow professionally and give back to support the Academy’s strategic direction.

MIGs have the opportunity to engage in networking with organizations related to their areas of interest.
