Washington D.C.— The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), the leading trade association for the dietary supplement and functional food industry, is announcing its continued partnership with the American Conference Institute (ACI) on the Fifth Annual Legal, Regulatory, and Compliance Forum on Dietary Supplements, which WholeFoods Magazine is a sponsor of, taking place in New York City at the Intercontinental New York Times Square on June 26 and 27, with additional workshops on June 28.

This “must-attend” event for dietary supplements and functional food industry legal and regulatory executives is teaming with a high level of quality speakers. The conference is reputable for its respected cohort of attendees ready to engage in discussions that will help shape the dietary supplement industry’s agenda. Steve Mister, president and CEO, CRN, and Scott Bass, partner, Sidley Austin LLP, will co-chair the conference.

“CRN is pleased to partner with ACI again to present the Dietary Supplements forum in New York,” Mister said. “The focused sessions promise to be especially valuable during this transformative time for our industry.”

CRN and ACI are developing programs with authoritative speakers on topics relevant to long-term business strategies and industry growth as they relate to regulation and compliance. This includes the impact of the new administration on the dietary supplement industry, the latest industry self-regulation efforts, enforcement action from state and federal authorities, new class action threats, novel questions on claims substantiation, and the federal GMO law and Prop 65 reforms.
