On Wednesday, May 30, 2018, 2:00 pm ET

Ethics play a major role in procurement, and procurement ethics are critical to your school nutrition operation. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn all about this crucial topic as part of SNA’s new programming, “School Nutrition Ethics: What Should You Do?”

In this day and age, procurement professionals must conduct their business practices in the most ethical manner. Failing to abide by ethical practices can lead to damaging situations for you, your program and your staff. Therefore, leaders must make certain that ethical procurement practices are taken to ensure the success of their school nutrition department. During this webinar, we will review scenarios that present ethical dilemmas and discuss what the law requires, in addition to possible approaches.
