Webinar Wednesdays - Get to Know Your Legislators

2019-09-23

SNA Webinar Wednesdays

There are several ways to influence elected officials that don't involve money. If a legislator is set to vote on an issue that effects your district, and everyone in his district has remained quiet, they will vote how they see fit. If they have heard from YOU, they’re more likely to vote in a way that supports YOU. After all, they are elected.

Join us this Wednesday, September 25, for the Host a Legislator Site Visit webinar and hear from two district directors who have a knack for engaging their legislators on the topics they care about. They’ll share their tips while SNA’s own Government Affairs & Media Relations Coordinator will share tons of resources that will make your future cafeteria site visit a success.

Is your program still on the fence about the importance of social media marketing? On October 2, join our Best of #ANC19: Social Media: Marketing Strategies to Build Your Following webinar and hear from a School Marketing Coordinator from Lexington County (South Carolina), who has proven putting in the time with social media can get your program noticed and make a difference in school lunch participation.
