Wednesday, October 25, 2017   (0 Comments)

A note from Maria Hall, MS, RD, LDN, SNS, Legislative & Nutrition Chair: 

We are now accepting grant applications for this year’s SNA National Legislative Action Conference (LAC) March 4th – March 6th in Washington DC.  

As your Legislative & Nutrition Committee Chair I encourage you to consider attending LAC this year.  LAC is an opportunity to participate in the democratic process as the Founding Fathers envisioned it. Attendees learn about legislative issues affecting child nutrition programs and have the opportunity to meet with elected representatives on Capitol Hill.  Reauthorization of the school lunch program is on the agenda this year making this an especially important year for our program’s future.

Consider bringing your expertise, your passion, and your stories to Washington, D.C., and prepare to shape and define national policy relating to school nutrition. SNA’s annual LAC will take place at the J.W. Marriott Hotel, in the heart of the nation’s capital.

This conference is an exciting and educational experience, which allows us as School Nutrition Professionals to educate congress about our national program and local needs. Involvement in the legislative process of our association brings amazing professional and personal growth and satisfaction. It allows us the opportunity to implement change at the highest possible level, mobilizing the house and senate to take action and care for the nation’s most precious commodity; our children. 

You, along with over an anticipated 1,000 members representing all states across the county attending, will learn all aspects of our annual Legislative Issue Paper prior to visiting the hill together. This will allow you to communicate our message to our elected officials and offer them recommendation how to support our programs and students.

We encourage all members to apply for the grant which will pay for the flights, registration and hotel!  

Applications are due by December 1, 2017.
