The summer heat has been blazing, but at SNAAZ we’re ON FIRE with conference planning. To celebrate you, they have been planning to let the good times roll at our 67th Annual State Conference. The committee has some awesome plans up their sleeves for rolling out a parade of great education breakouts. In addition to some great pre-conference sessions and our Saturday breakout education sessions you will have the opportunity to check out the wonderful exhibit hall packed full of new ideas, goods, and services to help make your child nutrition program cutting edge for the students you serve throughout the state of Arizona. Whether you are a director, supervisor, cafeteria manager, frontline staff, or central office/warehouse staff there is something for each of you! To register for the conference just click on the link below labeled “Member Registration”.
Our keynote speaker is the AMAZING, Vanessa Hayes! She is one of us and serves as the Chief Nutrition Officer of Tift County Schools in Tifton, Georgia. Anyone who has ever seen Vanessa speak leaves feeling energized, inspired, reflective and above all, feeling ready to conquer the world! In addition to her popular keynote, “Grit, Grind and Gratitude”, she will also be doing an additional education breakout for everyone too.
This year’s theme is Mardi Gras and the conference tagline is, “Looking SNAAZY, Feeling Jazzy” so be sure to break out your favorite Mardi Gras mask and costume as we celebrate this popular New Orleans event which dates back to 1699! Looking forward to seeing all of you this September 29-30, 2023 in downtown Phoenix.
Laissez les bons temps rouler (Let the Good Times Roll),
Patti Bilbrey, SNAAZ President
