What to Expect

SNIC 2021 Abraham Lincoln quoteThis year’s School Nutrition Industry Conference (SNIC) will be offered virtually Tuesday through Thursday, January 12-14, 2021 to ensure everyone’s safety. We are pleased to be able to bring you the same exceptional content and opportunities to connect at SNIC 2021 as we would for an in-person event.

As participants of SNIC have come to expect, the virtual conference will continue to offer innovative ideas and sharing among school nutrition operators and industry partners. #SNIC21 will take place over three afternoons starting at 1:00 p.m. EST daily, with short scheduled breaks.

Dear Supervisor Letter
We know that you recognize the value of attending SNIC, but many times in order to attend, you need to obtain approval from your supervisor for the time away from the office, as well as the registration fee. To help you when you approach your supervisor, we have created this handy "Dear Supervisor" letter template that you can use to make your case to attend.
