2022 Professional
Growth Conference
Begins In

SNAAZ 2022 Professional Growth Conference

Welcome to 2022 Professional Growth Conference

We are so excited to announce the 2022 Professional Growth Conference and its theme, “Happy To Be Together Again!” at the beautiful Little America Hotel & Conference Center in Flagstaff, Arizona.  And yes, we are happy and excited as this will be our first live in-person event since COVID.  The PG conference committee has planned a spectacular event for every level of child nutrition.  So, if you are a director, supervisor, manager, or frontline team member there will be great educational information geared specifically for you. 

We would like to thank the Dairy Council of Arizona & Nevada for sponsoring our keynote speaker, Dayle Hayes, MS, RD.  Dayle is a nationally acclaimed speaker recognized throughout the United States for her contributions to child nutrition and dietetics.  Read all about her below.

New this year… we listened to our attendees from last time and we will be going back to specific tracks geared towards director/supervisors (directors and supervisors please plan on bringing your laptop with you for your breakouts) and manager/employees because you will be changing breakout rooms throughout the day.  Also included with your registration this year will be our Friday night dinner, fun-raising, and entertainment.  And dinner will be served a little later than usual to give our attendees time to drive to Flagstaff and get checked into the hotel, change, and then come down for some great food, networking, and fun!

We look forward to seeing each one of you live and in-person February 25-26, 2022.


Lorrie Ahern, SNAAZ President

Michelle Hall, Professional Growth Chair

Register for 2022 SNAAZ Annual State Conference

Join us on for our 66th Annual State Conference on September 23-24, 2022, in downtown Phoenix, Arizona.

This year’s theme is “Together We Can Do It”.  Our President’s theme is based on the 1940’s Post WWII era.  It has been three years since our last in-person state conference.  The State Conference Planning Committee has put together an event geared to all levels of child nutrition.  So, if you are a director, supervisor, buyer, manager, or frontline worker there is something just for you. 

We are a state affiliate to the School Nutrition Association (SNA), which represents over 55,000 individuals who have made a commitment to child nutrition.
