Learning Opportunities Abound at SNA’s Annual Conference

May 14, 2012 – SNA’s Annual National Conference (ANC) in Denver, July 15-18, 2012, is the biggest and best event in school nutrition and attending will provide you with all the information you need to benefit your career, your program and your students. Learn from leaders in the field about everything from “Menuing to Meet the New Meal Patterns” to “Professional Standards for School Nutrition.” Visit hundreds of booths, taste new food products and gather information about equipment and services. Meet thousands of colleagues who hail from across the country and pick up best-practice tips from districts large and small.

Here are just a few of the other learning opportunities you will discover at ANC 2012:

Child Nutrition Showcase: One of the most valuable experiences at ANC is checking out the Child Nutrition Showcase, featuring more than 30 posters presentations created by SNA members highlighting best practices and recent research in the field of school nutrition.

Learning Lab: The School Nutrition Foundation (SNF) will be presenting a number of exciting programs through this year’s Learning Lab. This is where you can gather information about breakfast in the classroom, scholarship opportunities and upcoming Webinar Wednesdays and Peer2Peer Connect programs.

Culinary Demonstrations: Looking for new ideas for preparing and serving school meals? Make sure to check out all six of the Culinary Demonstrations in the Exhibit Hall, where professional chefs will provide you with healthy menu solutions that are sure to capture the attention of your students.

Cutting-Edge Complex: The Exhibit Hall is also where you’ll find the Cutting-Edge Complex. These presentations will clue you in to the most innovative and efficient kitchen equipment and technology that can help you create efficiencies and boost productivity.

New Product Showcase: Where can you get a first glimpse of what’s new and hot in school nutrition? The New Product Showcase, of course! Stop by this display to view the latest food, beverage, supply, equipment and service solutions introduced to the school nutrition market within the last year.

Still need a reason to make your way with your school nutrition team to Denver this summer? When you register additional staff from the same school district in the same member category, you can save $30. Saving you more, while adding big value to your district!
