Send a Letter to Your Supervisor

Dear Boss: Send me to CNIC in San Antonio!

Your district, like many others, is likely looking for ways to reduce costs and to ensure that the money spent to meet students’ needs goes as far as possible. In these tough economic times, with tight budgets and new nutrition standards, school nutrition professionals face significant challenges.

Your supervisor may need to know why attending SNA's 2013 Child Nutrition Industry Conference (CNIC) in San Antonio is a smart investment for your school nutrition program. This year’s conference theme, “Where Partners Create Possibilities,” focuses on the importance of collaboration, and will assist you in these challenging times. Because when we work together, even just one amazing idea can transform your operation and deliver the results you need to move your program to the next level!

SNA has created a letter template to help make your supervisor aware of how your district will benefit from your attendance at CNIC. Just download the document and submit it directly to your boss. Feel free to tailor the information to your district’s needs. Do you usually communicate by email? Then just cut and paste the information into an email. Be sure to include the CNIC meetings website,, in your email, as well.
