It’s No Gamble: Come to ANC and Win Big!

 Permanent link

As your ANC Steering Committee Chair, I have had the privilege to help plan this year’s action-packed ANC! Some of you may be on the edge “should I go or should I stay.” Well, I’d like to remind you that, as the saying goes, you can't WIN if you don’t PLAY! This year’s conference is a sure bet for finding winning solutions for your school nutrition program! Forget about the gaming tables on the Las Vegas Strip, ANC will feature the hottest “games” in town with seven program tracks to choose from:

  • Financial Management/Operations
  • Hot Topics
  • Human Resources
  • Marketing
  • Nutrition
  • Professional Skilling Building
  • USDA/Commodities

Within each of these tracks you’ll find a wide variety of individual education sessions, including these winners:

  • Pssst…Gossip in the Kitchen
  • Ten Feet Tall & Bulletproof: Top Traits of Leaders
  • Stirring the Pot…Pet Peeves that Raise Our Boiling Point

Also, be sure to stay tuned for announcements on Hot Topic sessions that will address charge policies, equipment, indirect costs, and much more. If you need a little head start on your learning, consider registering for one of the Pre-Conference sessions. They promise to give you in-depth, insider information on some the more complex issues facing child nutrition. Here are just a few we have lined up:

  • Financial Management: A Course for School Foodservice Directors
  • Solving the Food Allergy Puzzle
  • Step Up to the HealthierUS School Challenge

Walk down the ANC “Strip” and you’ll come across the Child Nutrition Showcase, featuring recent research and best practices in child nutrition. There is a roulette of ideas to see as you make your way around the different displays.  

What happens in Vegas comes back with you from Vegas! So don’t just sit there—start looking through the information on and let me know what looks like a sure bet for you.

ANC Steering Committee Chair

As Conference Co-Chair, I have had the pleasure to work with Peggy and the SNA staff on this conference. It is going to be such a great networking and learning event that I am really looking forward to it.

I have to tell you that the location is one of the best parts of this conference - beautiful hotels, all under the same roof as the meeting rooms and exhibits. When you are finished learning for the day you can also eat, shop, and be entertained without leaving the air conditioned comfort!

Viva ANC!
