Tips for Submitting an ANC Proposal

The ANC Steering Committee is seeking speakers to present on key topics in school nutrition, and there is no better opportunity to reach school nutrition professionals with your expertise, innovations and ideas. To submit your education session proposal, complete the “Call for Proposals” (CFP) form by October 9, 2009. If you have questions, please contact SNA at (800) 877-8822 for more information.

Content Priorities

The ANC Conference Steering Committee is looking for speakers to propose 1-hour concurrent educational sessions that focus on school nutrition programs, initiatives, trends and issues in one of the following four key areas as defined by SNA's Keys to Excellence in School Food and Nutrition Programs:

  • Nutrition and Nutrition Education
  •  Program Administration
  • Program Operations
  • Communications and Marketing

While proposals addressing all topics relevant to the key areas are welcome, special consideration will be given to those proposals addressing any/all of SNA's 2009-10 key issues for education: Membership Diversity; Professional Growth; Emerging Issues; and Professionalism.
NOTE: These topics reflect topics of current emphasis in school nutrition programs and are not the education topic tracks that will be featured in the ANC program. Final program tracks will be identified by the ANC Steering Committee.
