Please Read for Important Updates!
Hello and Happy Summer!
If we don’t know each other yet, my name is Emily Kyle and I am the 2017-2018 GDA District President. I am excited to be elected to this position, and excited to bring new ideas and opportunities to our organization.I have two goals for my term this year and that is to improve communication within our membership, and to highlight and maximize the benefits of being a member of the GDA.
I have been working hard on both those goals, and if you don’t already know, I am proud to introduce you to our brand new, updated and modern website that I have created myself! You can check it out at eatrightgda.org.
I’m not going to lie, the transition process was NOT easy, and I thank everyone for being patient as we made these changes. The process got a little sticky at times, so if you notice anything that is not working properly, please let me know.

Highlights of Our New Website
Blog – We now have a blog section of our website! If you have something you want to blog about, or that you want featured on the blog, please send it my way!
Calendar – The calendar section of the website will help to keep you aware of the events that will be going on throughout the year. The quarterly meeting dates have been planned for the 2017-2018 year, so please be sure to check it out and put the dates in your calendar. Everyone is encouraged to attend. If you have an event you would like added to the calendar, please let me know!
Who We Are – This is my favorite new addition to the website! As an organization, we should be able to promote ourselves and our work for local consumers in our area, and I believe this will be a great membership perk for you. YOU can now be featured on the website, simply fill out this form to be featured!
Private Facebook Group – Part of my goal to increase communication for the members of the GDA includes making a way for us all to stay in contact quickly and easily. After much consideration, a private Facebook group was determined to be the best option to do this. This group will remain private and only members of the GDA will have access to join. You can login to your Membership Home Page to request access. Please be sure your membership is active prior to requesting access.
Membership Home Page – The membership homepage is completely redesigned and will hopefully give you better insight into all of the Membership Perks you get for being a GDA member. Here you will find access to the private Facebook group, current members only job postings, our calendar and quarterly meeting dates, the board directory, and a place to post job postings. You can access your Membership Home Page here.
As I have said before, the transition process to this new website was a bit difficult, so if you see anything that is not working properly or does not look right, please let me know so I can fix it as soon as possible.
And a huge thank you for your patience as we made this difficult transition. Now that everything is finally in place, I am looking forward to an amazing year filled with fun, education, and lots of opportunities to network and connect with each other.
As always, please reach out to me directly with any questions or concerns!
Best – Emily Kyle!!
