SNIC 2021 FAQs

Why is SNIC 2021 being moved to a virtual format?

While we would prefer to see everyone in person, given the current state of emergency orders, we made the difficult decision to move SNIC to virtual for 2021 to ensure everyone’s safety. Even though the event is virtual, you can count on the same caliber of speakers and high-quality training attendees have come to expect from SNIC.

We are confident that new virtual format will still allow for lots of small group conversations and networking opportunities. We are also hopeful that even more school nutrition professionals will be able to take advantage of one of SNA's most popular conferences. Attending SNIC has never been more convenient!

What dates will SNIC 2021 be held?

The dates for SNIC 2021 have shifted slightly as, when this meeting is face-to-face, it normally starts on a weekend. Now that the decision has been made to move it to virtual, we did not want to interfere with anyone’s weekend time, so the dates are Tuesday, January 12th to Thursday, January 14th.

When will registration open?

Registration opens on November 2nd.

What does registration cost and what does it include?
