The Branch of the Year Award recognises and highlights the immense work that the volunteer members give to Branches in developing and supporting the profession. It was launched in 2013 to thank volunteer members for their enthusiasm, commitment and time given to their Branch. It is also a great opportunity for Branches to celebrate and highlight all the fantastic work that has been achieved.

Branch committees are asked to submit a nomination, this is judged by a panel of BDA Council members and the Award is presented, on an annual basis, at the BDA Awards Dinner.

Branch of the Year 2018

Congratulations to Yorkshire Branch

Yorkshire Branch were awarded Branch of the Year at the BDA Awards Dinner on the 4th July 2017 in Birmingham. Congratulations to the committee on their recognition for all their hard work and time given to the Branch.

The Yorkshire branch stood out in particular due to their drive for innovation, diversification and their excellent member communications. Short videos were introduced to give members a sneak peek at events.

Using social media the Branch were able to reach far beyond Yorkshire to engage with Dietitians abroad and in all areas of the UK. The branch constantly showed dedication and enthusiasm when using their social media channels and used unorthodox methods of marketing (cake!) to ensure that their drive and passion for Dietetics and nutrition shone through.

Congratulations also goes to the two shortlisted Branches:
