General Information

This year SNA of Mass. will be keeping it real! Our programs are about real food, real people and real fun and we need to celebrate and promote that. This year’s conference program begins with our keynote speaker, Craig Weidel sharing why he believes that school nutrition professionals are heroes and in another session shows us some easy steps to take to actually learn how to be happy. We will focus on how to keep it simple – learn the power of live video, engage in a conversation with parents about the SN program challenges and opportunities, and enjoy the one stop shopping opportunity our exhibit hall represents! Relax with your peers Tuesday night at Mezcal Tequila Cantina, just across the street from the DCU Center. Wednesday continues the theme with news and opportunities from SNA, updates from DESE, thoughts on how to improve relationships, and a fantastic panel and cooking demo with real food from real people clearly having real fun!
