NSNA Conference 2021

Dear NSNA member, I hope you are doing well! I regret to inform you that we will not be able to hold an in-person conference this year once again. Some of the factors for this decision:

1. The best interest in keeping each and every member safe and healthy.

2. Many of our speakers will not be able to travel or attend conferences until Fall of 2021. *School Nutrition Association-leadership, Institute of Child Nutrition-precon and Nebraska Department of Education Nutrition Services-1 keynote speaker and many breakouts, all are unable to travel. Some districts are not able to travel also.

3. Some manufacturers for our food show are not able to travel or attend conferences until at least Fall of 2021.

I do understand that many will be disappointed, but we as a board needed to conclude with this decision. Our state has been affected very differently across its vastness and we wanted to have best practices of looking out for the entire membership. We do appreciate your understanding and very much look forward to hosting an in-person conference once again!!

Now what?

We are planning to do some virtual training, hopefully with our Keynote speakers in June!! Please be on the lookout for that information in the future!! We are also planning on doing a monthly communication with you all!! The new monthly communication will be coming via email. If you have a new email, or could make sure we have the most current email for you, we would greatly appreciate it!! The best way to update your email is to log into your account on the SNA website and make sure the information is current.

Thank you all again for being the strong, dependable and essential School Nutrition Professionals that our students have needed in such an uncertain year!!!

You All Rock!!!

Sincerely, Karee Nielsen
