CRN’s Board of Directors adopted a new CRN strategic plan for the future, spanning 2024 through 2026, following an in-depth planning session of the Executive Committee with CRN staff to establish goals within each of five areas, instructing the association to:

Expand Self-Regulatory Initiatives:

Champion self-regulatory initiatives that demonstrate our members’ commitment to transparency, accountability, and responsible behavior to sustain and improve trust in our members’ products and to distinguish responsible companies.

Influence Public Policy:

Build and maintain a positive legislative, regulatory, and commercial environment for our members’ products to foster consumer confidence and industry growth.

Improve Consumer Access:

Improve consumer access to reliable information about the roles dietary supplements and functional food play for nutrition and health, and increase access to CRN members’ products.

Cultivate Positive Public Perceptions:

Create and foster awareness, perception and understanding of the safe and valuable roles our members’ products play on individual, family, and public health.

Expand Membership:

Lead the industry and build association resources through industry-focused education, member services, and community building that foster broad membership in CRN and differentiates CRN among supplement industry associations.
