Host a Legislator Site Visit

Register for SNA's Webinar Wednesdays E-Learning Events

2:00 pm ET on Wednesday, September 6, 2017

Inviting your legislator to your cafeteria for a behind-the-scenes look at the daily operation of your program could make the difference in preventing block grants, preserving funding and expanding commodity support. Hosting a legislator makes a major impact – and it doesn’t have to be stressful! Join a panel of experienced school nutrition advocates to get the scoop on how to plan and execute a successful cafeteria site visit. We’ll wrap up with a peek at the SNA Cafeteria Site Visit Toolkit, your guidebook providing step-by-step instructions of the whole process.

Successful completion of the webinar and quiz is awarded 1 SNA CEU, or 1 CPEU for RDs/DTRs.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe what to expect when you’re expecting (a visit).
  2. Prepare stakeholders and provide persuasive arguments.
  3. Discover how to take the fear out of visits, clear hurdles, and follow up for a successful experience.
