May 1, 2013 – SNA wants you to take your career to the next level, and the Annual National Conference (ANC) is just the place to start!
EducationThe crux of the conference, the 90+ education sessions that run from Sunday, July 14, to Wednesday, July 17, are sure to engage, inform and excite you about the school nutrition profession. But go above and beyond by attending a pre-conference session* on Saturday, July 13. Topics include:
CertificationThese pre-conference sessions each offer between four and eight Continuing Education Units, all of which can be applied to becoming SNA certified or moving up a level in your certification. Becoming SNA certified adds credibility to your position and to your school's program. It is also a factor in attracting people to careers in school foodservice and nutrition.
Attendance at ANC also offers you CEUS – attending ANC in its entirety awards you 25 CEUS with the assumption that members will attend at least 25 hours’ worth of programming, including education sessions, general sessions, exhibits and more. However, if you can only attend partially, you still get credit: Attendance on July 14 awards you four CEUS, July 15 earns six CEUs, and July 16 awards eight CEUs and July 17 offers seven CEUs. Attending both pre-conference session and education sessions also earns you a number of Key Area Hours; check the official ANC Program Guide to determine how many you will earn.
CredentialingAre you ready to earn the School Nutrition Specialist (SNS) credential? Sit for the SNS credentialing exam on Sunday, July 14, in Kansas City; the exam evaluates candidates’ knowledge and skills required to perform specific job activities related to managing or directing school nutrition programs. Members must meet all minimum requirements and pre-register by June 21, 2013.
