  • Equipment Procurement How To: Spec Writing, Delivery, Installation and Preventative Maintenance: 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. (2.0 CEUs) Have you ever looked at equipment procurement and thought “where do I start?” Look no further as this session will take you through the RFQ process and give you the tools to submit your own. Learn about hiring consultants and equipment procurement on new construction and existing contracts both regionally and nationally. This session is a must for all equipment decision makers.
  • Crafting Your Message to Win Over All Audiences: 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. (2.0 CEUs) It’s evident that the need for effective talking points to connect with various stakeholders—parents, teachers, school staff, principals, school boards, and the broader community—is more crucial than ever. Join our think tank to facilitate conversation among your peers and come away with some ideas you can take back to your district or company. We’ll employ Mentimeter, a dynamic tool for participants to brainstorm, share insights and exchange experiences. These contributions will help shape the future of school nutrition communication. The information learned and shared will help develop a new resource for school nutrition operators and industry: a talking points tool kit.

Unlock the full potential of your #SNIC24 experience by participating in these pre-conference workshops. These sessions offer a unique opportunity to deepen your knowledge, engage with peers and contribute to the evolution of school nutrition practices.
