Register for LAC 2019

Be among hundreds of school nutrition professionals who will come together at #LAC19 to help shape federal nutrition policy and discuss the most pressing issues facing our programs. As experts in school nutrition who work every day to provide our nation’s children with healthy and nutritious meals, SNA members are the most effective advocates for programs that improve the health of and reduce food insecurity for 30 million students each day.

LAC is an opportunity to speak directly to your representatives and work together with other SNA members from across the country to demonstrate to Members of Congress the importance of school meals programs for students’ success both inside and outside the classroom. The lessons you’ve learned and the challenges you’ve faced in cafeterias, school districts and state agencies can help shape the debate in Washington, and at LAC you can be sure that your voice and message will be heard.

At this year’s conference, we hope to facilitate critical discussions about the national trends that are shaping school meal programs, as well as offer you opportunities to learn how to be the best advocates for your programs. General sessions feature acclaimed presidential and political historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, and a bipartisan discussion with former Senators Trent Lott (R-MS) and Tom Daschle (D-SD). Plan to come a day early for a stellar pre-conference session on how to build a first-class advocacy operation.
