Are you a menu-planning master? A wellness policy wizard? A financial management maven?

SNA is looking to diversify our pool of subject matter experts (SMEs) and trainers, and we want you to tell us about your depth of knowledge in a variety of topics. By filling out the SME form, you may be able to support SNA in a variety of ways: professional development initiatives, contributing to or being interviewed for SN magazine or media inquires. Additionally, you’ll help SNA diversify the pool of voices we’re able to highlight and ensure we are being as inclusive as possible in our expert pool.

What is a subject matter expert? We consider these people to be comfortable leading a training, speaking on a webinar, writing an article or creating training content on a specific topic. You might not think you’re a subject matter expert, but don’t be humble—your experience and/or education/training likely means you can speak or write confidently on one or more school nutrition topics.
