Sign Up Today for SNA's Spring Industry Boot Camp!


Join us on May 11-12, 2016, for SNA’s Spring Industry Boot Camp and see why companies are making it a priority for new employees. Held in May and November at SNA’s Headquarters in National Harbor, Md., this dynamic educational seminar will provide 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 for you “seasoned” professionals. During this seminar, participants will learn about school meal nutrition guidelines and regulations, market trends, school nutrition procurement, USDA Foods, and more. Participants will tour a local school cafeteria, and participate in a moderated panel discussion with school nutrition directors from the greater Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.

Don't just take our word for it...check out what past participants are saying:

“I attended the spring 2015 Boot Camp at SNA Headquarters in Maryland. Being new to the industry, I found the 2-day conference to be a great immersion into all aspects of the school nutrition business. I made valuable connections, learned directly from Food Service 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.”

“SNA’s spring 2015 Industry Boot Camp was very impressive. The exposure to USDA and Food and Nutrition Services (FNS’s) perspective and intent/interpretation of regulations was extremely educational. Additionally, 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. I am looking forward to the “next level” of Boot Camp!”
