Mister and Falsani to Co-Chair ACI/CRN’s Dietary Supplements Forum

APRIL 11, 2022

Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) and the American Conference Institute (ACI) have teamed up once again to deliver the industry’s annual Legal, Regulatory & Compliance Forum on Dietary Supplements (ACI-CRN Dietary Supplements Forum.). This year’s conference will return live and in-person on June 29–30 at the Westin Grand Central hotel in New York City.

“It’s such an important time to come together for in-depth discussions of the legal and regulatory challenges our industry faces,” commented Steve Mister, CRN President & CEO, and this year’s conference co-chair. Mister further elaborated that “Our ability to innovate and to deliver on growing consumer demand for safe, effective, and beneficial dietary supplement and functional food products depends on being able to maneuver the changing legal and regulatory landscape as well. This conference always delivers the latest advice, strategic insights to guide decisions, provocative conversations and the camaraderie that comes from exchanging ideas and learning with your colleagues.”

Tara Falsani, General Counsel, VP at Nature’s Way, who is also co-chairing this year noted that “Legal and regulatory issues are front and center for our industry, affecting supplements used for decades like n-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) and newer formulations such as hemp derived cannabidiol (CBD) alike, with the potential to affect other ingredients. Our agenda will help participants prepare for what’s ahead.”

This year’s ACI-CRN Dietary Supplements Forum will be a comprehensive two-day conference—with an additional workshop day covering international and advertising and social media concerns for the industry.  The event will also have opportunities for networking and benchmarking on the latest developments affecting “products intended to supplement the diet.” Live streaming option also available.
