ANC 2012: A Conference With Your Needs in Mind

May 18, 2012 – Are you a new school nutrition director (3 years or less) attending SNA’s 2012 Annual National Conference (ANC), July 15-18, 2012, in Denver? Or do you know a new director who is planning to attend? If so, be sure to sign up to attend a special education session designed especially for you! The "What Have I Gotten Myself Into?” session, to be held Sunday, July 15, will connect you to the many resources at your disposal to help you find your footing and gain insights on using them to achieve success for your program. There are even more education sessions happening at ANC that are directly relevant to you and your needs, as well as a special New Directors’ Reception that will connect you with other new (and seasoned) directors in attendance.

Not a new director but looking to get the most out of your ANC educational experience? You’ll be please to know that there are currently more than 85 education sessions lined up for you to choose from, including several “Hot Topic” sessions designed to provide you with information on the critical issues impacting the school nutrition profession. Two of these sessions, “Earning and Keeping Your 6 Cents” and “Professional Standards for School Nutrition” are designed to help you meet the new nutrition standards this fall and other critical challenges facing the school nutrition profession in years to come.

Plus, in addition to "New Director" and "Hot Topic" sessions, there are several sessions that will provide you with plenty of best-practice solutions to keep your program—and your career—thriving for years to come. These best-practice sessions include “Great Expectations Create Great Achievements,” “Effective Marketing to the Next Generation” and “Managing the Mystery: Correcting Myths and Sharing Best Practices of Food Allergy Management.” You simply can’t go wrong choosing any of these best-practice sessions!

To be part of this four-day learning and networking event, visit SNA will accept Regular Rate registrations until June 1st, a savings to you of $50. But hurry—after that date, all registrations received will be charged at the Onsite Rate. SNA members also receive special savings when more than one person in the same membership category registers from their school district.
