Be part of advocacy in action when you attend SNA’s Legislative Action Conference in the nation’s capital.

March 5-7, 2023 |  Washington, D.C.

Due to overwhelming interest, registration for LAC is now closed and at capacity. At this point, we do not foresee the opportunity for a spot to open. That said, if you are in DC, you could consider checking onsite as there may be last minute no-shows. But please know that we cannot guarantee a spot.

Thank you for being a school nutrition advocate and your interest in attending LAC.

With your help, SNA’s Political Action Committee (PAC) works to support, educate and thank Congressional members who are involved in and passionate about SNA issues. Bring your questions and stop by the PAC table at LAC to learn more about how crucial your support is in helping to meet the PAC goals.

The Professionals Standards Tracking Grid will be available on the LAC23 app to help you keep track of your training.
