ANC 2015 attendees:  you won’t want to miss SNA’s Red Carpet Awards Ceremony in Salt Lake City! This annual celebration, recognizing the amazing contributions of school nutrition professionals, will take place on Sunday, June 12 at 10:00am-11:30am in Grand Ballroom BDF.

SNA will recognize state, regional and national winners of the Employee of the Year, Manager of the Year, and Director of the Year awards, as well as state association leaders who have earned the President’s Award of Achievement, in honor of Thelma Flanagan. SNA will announce winners of the state association membership and professional development awards and recognize 30 year exhibitors. 

We’ll also recognize the 2015 Industry Member of the Year Award winner, Tracey Tinder, ConAgra Foods, Inc.’s Western Regional Sales Manager K-12 School Specialist. Once a beneficiary of the National School Lunch Program, Tracey has dedicated the last 18 years to strengthening the program for students. She hosts taste tests and nutrition fairs, volunteers to teach staff development and training sessions and even launched an “Adopt a School Program” to better support the districts she has served. Among her many critical roles at California SNA, Tracey has devoted countless hours to the affiliate’s Public Policy and Legislation Committee, collaborated with operators to develop impactful legislative resources, and raised funds allowing 140 SNA members to participate in legislative conferences. Tracey currently serves as a member of the SNA Industry Advisory Board.
