SNIC 2016: Registration to Open October 1st


One thing you can say about school nutrition: It’s never boring! With advocacy priorities always on the agenda, the need to make adjustments to regulatory requirements on a continual basis and ever-changing technologies affecting every aspect of operations, school nutrition operators and industry partners need every advantage they can find just to keep up. One of those insider advantages is SNA’s annual School Nutrition Industry Conference (SNIC), the popular education and networking event for directors and industry to come together and determine practical strategies for today’s challenges.

Whether you’re new to SNIC or a seasoned attendee, the 2016 conference will deliver numerous opportunities for inspiration and collaboration. The theme, “Building Practical Solutions for School Nutrition,” will highlight the value of cooperation in creating a healthy and positive environment for K-12 students who are served year-round.

SNIC will take place January 17-19, 2016, at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina in the California city known for its mild year-round climate and miles of breathtaking coastline. Here’s a sneak peek of some expected highlights:

  • Interactive team-building and solution-seeking activities that will focus on some of the hot topics facing the school nutrition business today.
  • Moderated panel discussions featuring the “new faces” of school nutrition to provide insights into how our multi-generational workforce can work together more effectively.
  • Small group educational sessions focusing on such key issues as procurement ethics, cost-effective mobile solutions, social media and administrative review preparation.

At SNIC, you’ll receive the knowledge, motivation and resources you need to stay ahead of the game in school nutrition! Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with industry partners and top district directors to build relationships and generate new ideas to take school nutrition to the next level.
