Industry Education Sessions

Offered exclusively to industry representatives, these sessions are designed to enhance awareness of new and evolving challenges faced by their school nutrition operator customers. The more you know, the better you can position yourself—and your business—to be an essential partner in offering solutions.

What You Should Know Before You Pick up the Phone
Facilitator: Patricia Fitzgerald
Panelists: Jessica Shelly, MBA, SNS; Rodney Taylor; Michael Rosenberger, MBA; Michelle Coker, MA, RD, LD, SNS

Every school nutrition program is unique in how they feed hungry students each day. Not all serve breakfast, afterschool snacks or supper. Some rely on central kitchens, some offer mobile ordering, and some use reimbursable meal vending machines. Join our distinguished panelists to learn about the critical program information you MUST know before you make that call. This session will be particularly helpful to those industry members who are relatively new to the K-12 segment.

Sunday, January 21, 2:00 pm-3:00 pm

Industry’s Role in Procurement and Administrative Reviews
Facilitator: Barry Sackin, SNS
Panelists: Julia Bauscher, SNS; Jill Kidd, MS, RD, SNS; Nicole Nicoloff; Tom Patrick; Sean Monahan

There are several critical documents related to procurement that SFAs must provide during their Administrative Review. Excellent customer service necessitates that you are aware of the new requirements and have provided the essential documents in a timely manner. Don’t miss this opportunity to take your customer service to the next level.
