Yes. Membership in SNA gives you exclusive resources and tools that can benefit your career and your school nutrition program. Once you are a member, your online account gives you up-to-date access to your membership and certificate records. You can also download a copy of your membership card and view your current CEUs obtained through SNA.

CEUs are Continuing Education Units. The purpose of CEUs is to provide job-related professional development and growth experiences. Annual training (earning CEUs) is a requirement for both USDA Professional Standards and maintaining your Certificate in School Nutrition or SNS Credential.
