February 27, 2012 – Are you headed to Washington, D.C., this weekend for SNA's 40th annual Legislative Action Conference (LAC)? Well, get ready for four inspiring days in the nation’s capital—where history happens every day and where you’ll join together with hundreds of your school nutrition colleagues to walk the halls of Congress and help attract attention to school nutrition programs nationwide. This year’s conference will be the largest LAC to date, with more than 900 attendees already registered. If you don’t want to miss being a part of this memorable event but haven’t yet registered, it’s not too late! Simply fill out the onsite registration form and turn it in at the LAC Registration desk when you arrive.
LAC will be taking place March 4-7, 2012, at the JW Marriott Hotel in the heart of downtown D.C., and just minutes from some of the most recognizable landmarks and monuments of our nation. Highlights of this year’s conference will include:
And when the learning and lobbying is done on Monday, March 5 and Tuesday, March 6, you will meet old and new friends during the LAC Banquet and the Global Child Nutrition Foundation’s A Possible Dream Gala, a special evening that celebrates the champions of child nutrition.
If you’re starting to pack for your trip, business attire is appropriate for LAC sessions and your day on Capitol Hill. Business-formal to evening-dressy attire is recommended for the LAC Banquet, while cocktail attire is appropriate for the A Possible Dream Gala. The projected weather forecast during LAC is partly sunny with highs in the mid-50s.
