December 15, 2011 – Online Registration is now open for the 40th annual gathering of school nutrition professionals in Washington, D.C., for SNA’s Legislative Action Conference (LAC). This year’s event, taking place March 4-7, 2012, at the J.W. Marriott Hotel, is your opportunity to be an advocate for children and make a difference in the future of school nutrition. 2012 is a monumentally important year for our profession, as it brings with it the implementation of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act and the pending new regulations. Plus, as we rapidly approach the next presidential election, LAC 2012 promises the ideal setting to discuss issues and challenges, and share ideas that will help us move forward and build upon the achievements of the last 40 years. But this discussion and exchange will only be effective if SNA members, allies and advocates come together in force and united in support of the mission of the school meals programs.Why is it so important that you not miss out on this historic milestone? Because LAC is considered one of the most productive and exciting events in school nutrition! Because this 40th annual gathering will have it all:
These are just some of the wonderful opportunities that await you at LAC 2012, so make plans today to join us in our nation’s capital for four inspiring days as we walk the halls of Congress, network with colleagues and discuss the state of our programs!
