Within the Academy are 26 dietetic practice groups (DPGs) that provide focus for specialized areas of practice. Several of the DPGs host in-person symposiums in the spring of each year and year-round virtual, educational events.

The Academy also maintains 53 affiliate organizations. These geographically affiliated organizations include the 50 states, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia and the International Affiliate of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Although affiliated with the Academy, many of these organizations plan their own events throughout the spring and several in the fall.
