Badge Policy

For security purposes, each person must present identification in order to receive your registration packet and will not be allowed to pick-up another attendee’s registration packet. In addition, please note badges must be worn during the conference hours for admittance to the pre-conference, education and general sessions, as well as social events. Anyone without a SNIC 2018 badge will be asked to register for the conference. To reprint a lost badge, there will be a fee of $5.00. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Cancellations & Schedule Changes

Circumstances beyond SNA's control—weather, transportation difficulties or last-minute cancellations by program participants (speakers, presenters)—may necessitate changes in the scheduling or presentation of events and/or programs or even cancellation of a particular scheduled event or speaker. SNA cannot be responsible in any way to any conference attendee for any disappointment, inconvenience or "loss" caused by such an eventuality.

Conference Photos

Attendance or participation in SNA meetings and other activities constitutes an agreement by the attendee for SNA's use and distribution of the attendee's image or voice in photographs, videotapes, electronic reproductions and audiotapes taken during the conference.

Attending Has Its Rewards!

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
SNA CEUs are aligned with USDA Professional Standards required training standards. All SNIC attendees who attend the full conference will earn CEUs toward SNA’s Certificate Program, the SNS Credential renewal and USDA Professional Standards, where applicable. CEUs for SNIC pre-conference workshops can be used to apply for an initial SNA Certificate, move up a Certificate level or count toward USDA Professional Standards annual training, as appropriate.

Tracking Training
A tracking grid will be provided at Registration for attendees to track CEUs and training taken at SNIC. For your convenience (and where applicable), Pre-Conference Workshops, General Sessions and Education Sessions will be coded to correspond with USDA’s Professional Standards Learning Topics.

SNA is committed to making all SNIC activities accessible to all attendees. For special needs, including dietary for events serving food/beverages, please contact SNA's Meetings Center at
