Sign Up for Boot Camp Now!


Attention industry representatives! Join us on November 18-19, 2015, for SNA’s Fall Industry Boot Camp and see why companies are making it a priority for new employees to attend. Held twice a year in May and November at SNA’s Headquarters in National Harbor, Md., this dynamic educational seminar provides a comprehensive understanding of the school foodservice segment. It serves as a launching pad for those who are new to the market, as well as a great refresher “seasoned” professionals.

During the upcoming fall seminar, participants will learn about school meal nutrition guidelines and regulations, market trends, school nutrition procurement, USDA Foods, and more. Participants will also tour a local school cafeteria, and participate in a moderated panel discussion with school nutrition directors from the greater Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.

What are past participants saying? “Being new to the industry, I found the two-day conference to be a great immersion into all aspects of the school nutrition business,” said Joe Rufo, Member Development Manager for IPS Rebates, who attended the 2015 Spring Industry Boot Camp. “I made valuable connections, learned directly from foodservice directors representing small, medium and large districts, and I had the opportunity to see how an actual kitchen operates from food storage to prep and delivery. The program was informative, interesting, well-planned and executed. Minimal wasted time, maximum learning.”

“The exposure to USDA and Food and Nutrition Services perspective and intent/interpretation of regulations was extremely educational,” said Ashley Grossman, RD, LD, Director of National Sales for US Foods, who also attended the spring seminar. “Being allowed to observe schools in session was a tremendous experience; there is nothing like firsthand observation to better understand real-life implementation, including obstacles.”
