All Trails Lead to Your Success!

The School Nutrition Association (SNA) is your source for the most professional, highest-quality resources for those working in the K-12 school foodservice segment. There’s an outstanding Annual National Conference (ANC), featuring 100 education sessions and the single largest exhibit hall exclusive to this market. There are a variety of top-notch tools and programs to help you meet Professional Standards training requirements. And both of these critical membership benefits are highlighted this month in School Nutrition, SNA’s award-winning-and-still-getting-better-all-the-time national magazine.

This month, the magazine team demonstrates how it refuses to rest on its laurels, introducing a brand-new design, featuring several new columns, in a record-breaking 192-page issue. Fans of SN’s Ruby Reader mascot will be inspired to read every page right away to hunt for Ruby before the July deadline of the annual What’s Ruby Reading? Contest. Others may opt to explore the refreshed magazine at greater leisure over the summer. Either way, be sure you look out for the following highlights in this issue:

A focus on the unique needs of adult learners. Whether you are a trainer seeking tips to improve efforts in reaching your staff or a student seeking to identify your personal learning styles, discover if you have a learning disability or explore learning opportunities that have nothing to do with your profession, you are sure to find inspiration in the stories of peers who have pursued their  "diploma dreams" and those who pay it forward by becoming trainers/instructors.

A comprehensive overview of the many ways SNA supports you in your efforts to manage the new federal Professional Standards training requirements, with a "4-P plan for success," answers to your FAQs, our free webinars and, of course, the SNA Certificate in School Nutrition and the SNS Credential.

A preview of this year’s ANC in San Antonio, with an at-press time list of exhibitors, San Antonio sight-seeing suggestions and insider travel tips from SNA Past President Julia Bauscher, SNS.

Our new profiles ( "My Leadership Journey" and "Last Word"), targeted coverage for managers and employees ( "Onsite Insights"), celebration of the creativity and joy in school nutrition ( "Things We Love"), news coverage ( "What's Cooking" and "What's Cooking @SNA"), a fresh approach to the monthly CEU article ( "To Your Credit"), resources ( "This & That") and much more!

Coming Next Month in School Nutrition: Don’t miss the August issue of School Nutrition, which will feature articles about customer service and introduce you to 2016-17 SNA President Becky Domokos-Bays, PhD, RD, SNS.
