Procure a Greater Understanding of Procurement with Webinar Wednesdays


SNA Webinar Wednesdays

In the new year we are continuing our commitment to providing you greater understanding on difficult subjects, like procurement. In the second installment of our procurement series, Barry Sackin returns to dive into Procurement Do’s and Don’ts for Operators. Each ‘do’ and ‘don’t’ are backed with practical examples. We also hope to have a lively Q&A at the end filled with your pressing procurement questions.

Then on January 29, we are elated to have general session speaker Charlene Li present Creating a Next Gen Customer Experience Strategy. Known for her New York Times bestseller Open Leadership and critically acclaimed bestseller Groundswell, she is one of the foremost experts on business strategy and disruptive technology, and a sought-after speaker and advisor to many top global companies. Named one of the Top 50 Leadership Innovators by Inc. and one of the 100 most creative people in business by Fast Company, she will discuss how to meet Next Gen’s heighted expectations.

SNA Webinar WednesdaysCommunity Eligibility Provision: Title I
Wednesday, February 5, 2020 pm ET 
SNA and FRAC have partnered together to bring you a webinar focused on community eligibility. It’s that time of year for school districts interested in the Community Eligibility Provision, a federal option that allows high poverty schools to offer free breakfast and lunch to all students, to start conversations with district administrators about implementation for the 2020-2021 school years. Community eligibility reduces administrative burdens by eliminating the school meal application and increases participation because all students eat at no cost, making it a win-win for school districts and students alike.

Successful completion of the webinar and quiz is awarded 1 SNA CEU, or 1 CPEU for RDNs/NDTRs.
