2009 LAC Conference Handout

At LAC 2009, you will gain firsthand knowledge of the inner working of the democratic process, as you learn about the issues facing school nutrition programs both locally and nationally. As this year is a child nutrition reauthorization year - the stakes are even higher! You also will have the chance to visit Capitol Hill, where you can let elected legislators of the U.S. Congress know your priorities as a child nutrition expert. Finally, you will hear valuable updates from representatives of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, as well as political insights from Washington insiders.

Please fill out the District Profile Sheet (in Related Links) and print a copy to bring with you on your Hill visits with members of Congress. Also, after completing the form, click the green envelope button at the end bottom of the sheet to submit the form to SNA. You may need to install macros or allow a secure certificate on your computer to use the form - your computer should prompt you to do so.

Of course, there are many more reasons to attend LAC 2009, so make plans to come and spend some time with us as we learn, have some fun, and share experiences on advocating for the most worthwhile cause—our children. We look forward to seeing you!
