Members of the panels are required to consider argument, distill facts and ask questions necessary to reach a conclusion on cases which are brought to them by the AfN. They should be able to analyse complex information, follow procedures and guidelines to arrive at sound, defensible judgments.  

Members are selected on a rotation to serve on panels, having regard to availability and potential conflicts of interest. An honorarium will be paid and travel and subsistence reimbursed according to our expenses policy. Meetings will be held in London.

We are particularly keen to receive applications from Registrants who have experience of participating in or chairing investigation hearings, fitness to practice proceedings, adjudication, complaints or appeals in the public, private or voluntary sector.  For Registered Associate Nutritionists and Registered Nutritionists for whom this experience may be limited, we are keen to receive applications which demonstrate an ability to apply similar skills in settings that might be outside the field of nutrition, or in a voluntary role.
