Best of #LAC18: Natural Disasters - Preparation & Impact
2:00 pm ET on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 
In the wake of a natural disaster, communities turn to their schools to fulfill their most immediate need–food. With power outages and grocery stores and restaurants closed or destroyed, school nutrition professionals are often first responders. Structural damage and population migration have far-reaching, immediate and long-term impacts on a school nutrition program. Hear about year-round preparation efforts and direct solutions from school nutrition directors and state agency officials who have experienced the effects of recent record-breaking climate events.
Successful completion of the webinar and quiz is awarded 1 SNA CEU, or 1 CPEU for RDs/DTRs.

Helpful Tips for Training Your Multigenerational Staff
2:00 pm ET on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 
Today’s School Nutrition Professionals are comprised of varying generations. It can often be challenging to find common ground when training four (and very soon five) different generations. All have different values, motivators and learning styles. We all view the world through our generational filter and as you know what works for one person may not work for another. Thinking about training for different generations, different motivators and different learning styles may make your head spin! Yet training must take place and must also be effective. This webinar will provide insight to help you understand the differences of the varying generations, what motivates them, and how to successfully engage them in a training environment. Successful completion of the webinar and quiz is awarded 1 SNA CEU, or 1 CPEU for RDs/DTRs.

Almost every week, we read in the newspaper or watch on television some horrible event unfolding at a school somewhere in the United States.

This webinar will highlight time-tested strategies that you can apply to your role in the cafeteria, as well as in your everyday life in this ever-changing society. Being aware of what threats exist and how to respond to them is the first step towards ensuring that you, your staff and your family are safe.
