November 14, 2012 – With tight budgets and new nutrition standards, school nutrition professionals face significant challenges. Everyone has to do MORE...with less, and that’s just one reason that continued professional development is more important than ever. SNA’s upcoming 2013 Child Nutrition Industry Conference (CNIC) in San Antonio will provide the career educational and networking opportunities you need for success. Plus, when you register by the Early Bird registration deadline, November 26, you will save $50 off the regular registration fees. Talk about getting the most out of your education dollar!
This annual event will be held January 13-15, 2013, at the Grand Hyatt in San Antonio and its theme, “Where Partners Create Possibilities,” will focus on the importance of collaboration. You’ll gain new information and ideas from inspiring keynote speakers and presentations from experts on topics including the latest data on the operational impact of the new meal patterns to how the outcome of the 2012 Presidential and Congressional elections may affect your operation or business.
One of the highlights of the conference each year, and sure to be a hit at CNIC 2013, is the Innovation Station sessions. This unique learning experience will give you the chance to team up with your peers and preview the latest and most innovative food, beverage, service, supply and equipment offerings on the market today. Innovation Stations also allow industry representatives interested in meeting key decision-makers like you the opportunity to discuss your requirements and obtain your valuable feedback.
With so many takeaways from CNIC, it shouldn’t be hard convincing your supervisor why it’s so important to attend. However, if you need a little help demonstrating the importance; SNA has created a letter template highlighting how your professional development at CNIC is a smart investment for your school nutrition program.
So, don’t delay...register by November 26 and join us in San Antonio for CNIC 2013!
