Don’t Miss the ANC 2017 Call for Proposals (and Posters)!


SNA invites you to submit proposals for presentation consideration at its 2017 Annual National Conference (ANC) in Atlanta, Ga., July 9-12, 2017. The Association is looking for proposals in the four key learning areas of USDA Professional Standards. Presentation options include 60-minute education sessions or 60-minute interactive round table sessions. Alternatively, you also have the option to submit a proposal for a 4- or 8-hour pre-conference session taking place on Saturday, July 8, 2017.

There are many benefits of presenting at ANC, including pre- and post-event promotion to SNA members, onsite access to the events and networking opportunities of the conference and your contribution to furthering the education and development of K-12 foodservice professionals.

SNA is seeking to develop an overall program that will result in a diverse array of presenters and perspectives including different professional levels and levels of experience. ANC 2017 will focus on the following key areas:

  • Nutrition
  • Operations
  • Administration
  • Communications and Marketing

Additionally, the Call for Poster Proposals for the School Nutrition Research & Best Practices Showcase is now aligned with the Call for Proposals for ANC education sessions mentioned above. This is to allow for better promotion and incorporation of the posters with all of ANC’s educational activities. Therefore, SNA is now also accepting poster proposals for its 27th annual School Nutrition Research and Best Practices Showcase, which will take place during ANC 2017 and will feature two types:

  • Best Practices Posters: These posters focus on best practices that school districts have recently implemented related to child nutrition.
  • School Nutrition Research Posters: These posters share findings from recent research on child and school nutrition.

Visit if you are interested in submitting a proposal for the SN Showcase.

Please note: The Call for Proposals (for all ANC presentations and posters) must be submitted online by 11:59 pm ET on September 30, 2016. If you have any questions, please email SNA’s Education Center at
