Next, do you recognize a good candidate for a manager of a school nutrition cafeteria site when you see one among your employees? It's a good thing if you can, because sometimes, they don't even recognize themselves! School districts large and small are helping to get those employees with the greatest potential up to speed. Learn about their training tactics in “Step It Up.”
One of your strategies might be to use homegrown talent to lead your workshops. For expert guidance on teaching others, turn to “Head of the Class”. Top trainers in school nutrition agree that skills in planning-and, yes, presenting-effective training sessions can be learned by any director or manager.
Of course, a terrific training opportunity every year is SNA's Annual National Conference, the premier event in school nutrition. Take a look at fast facts and photos of the activities, presenters, and dynamic show floor at ANC 2007, when you read “All That Jazz.” SNA's 61st Annual National Conference was held July 15-18, 2007, with a record-breaking number of people in attendance.
