ANC 2012: A Message from the Program Chair

May 24, 2012 – Each spring, as we approach the end of the school year, I get very excited about the upcoming Annual National Conference (ANC). In fact, I look forward to it for months beforehand, because I know it’s where I will find all the latest and greatest information geared specifically for school nutrition professionals. And with ANC right around the corner—taking place in Denver, July 15-18, 2012—my excitement level is really starting to build!

I can tell you firsthand, that SNA staff, experts and school nutrition leaders have worked diligently on a FANTASTIC program. There is something for everyone, and you will NOT want to miss one single day of the conference.

There are a multitude of excellent opportunities to further your professional development by attending thought-provoking general and education sessions. Attendees can tailor their schedule with a wide variety of educational offerings in the key areas of operations, nutrition, administration and communications and marketing. And with the new meal pattern rapidly approaching, you will not want to miss the sessions on this hot topic.

Additionally, I always look forward to perusing the Exhibit Hall to find new, innovative products and services to benefit our students and business. It really is a one-of-a-kind experience, and industry does an excellent job bringing you the very best. In fact, we could not do our jobs if it were not for this supportive group of individuals and companies who represent child nutrition 100%!

And finally, I’d like to point out that this year’s theme is “Explore New Horizons.” WOW, for these times that we are experiencing this is so true—now more than ever before!

In this brief note, I’ve touched on just some of what is happening at ANC… but there is much, much more! Now I invite you to explore everything that ANC 2012 has to offer (and make some time to check out Denver, too). I guarantee you’ll enjoy learning and sharing new ideas, getting together with old friends, making new ones and most importantly having a great time at “The School Nutrition Event of the Year.”

I look forward to seeing you ALL in Denver!
