I would like to welcome you all to the SNAAZ 66 th Annual State Conference this is our first in-person annual state conference since COVID-19 hit. Your state conference planning committee has put in tremendous efforts and time to ensure that the conference theme, “Together We Can Do It” will be met through awesome educational sessions, our special keynote speaker, and of course our fantastic food show. New this year we will be offering some bilingual education sessions so you can either brush up on your English or Spanish.
Our Friday night event will be a little different than past years. Instead of a formal sit-down dinner we will be offering a more casual atmosphere with heavy appetizers and a wonderful live band which will be fun for all. Since it has been three years since we gathered in-person in September, I would encourage everyone to be sure to make an effort to meet new fellow members and let’s also get reacquainted with old ones that we haven’t seen for a long time.
I also want to thank our industry partners for participating this year we all look forward to interacting and learning about all the new items that they have to offer to our child nutrition colleagues.

Register for 2023 SNAAZ Annual State Conference
The summer heat has been blazing, but at SNAAZ we’re ON FIRE with conference planning. Yes, we certainly sizzle, but we also have the “coolest” members around. To celebrate you, the conference committee has 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!
