The Association is comprised of six centers that assist with carrying out the SNA mission.

Executive Office

The Office for the Chief Executive Officer coordinates the entire range of programs, policies and services provided by the Association and the School Nutrition Foundation.

Business Development & Meetings Center

The Business Development & Meetings Center is responsible for planning and management of all SNA meetings and conferences to include coordination of all housing and travel, conference registration, onsite conference logistics and exhibit sales and management. The Center is also responsible for all industry-related activities, including the Industry Advisory Board, Industry Membership, the Patron Program, Industry Partnerships, and Industry Sponsorships.

Digital & Print Communications Center

The Digital & Print Communications Center produces all of the Association's published products including the flagship publication, School Nutrition, and the Association website.

Government Affairs & Media Relations Center

The Government Affairs & Media Relations Center is the advocacy, policy and outreach arm for the Association, managing relationships with the U.S. Congress and Federal Agencies-specifically the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Education. The Center provides review, insight and comment on regulatory and legislative issues, and provides assistance to members at both the national and state level on critical school nutrition issues. The Center also works closely with national allied organizations and other member associations, and handles all outreach to the media, including print, social, and radio/television.
