School Nutrition Association of Arizona has 7 active chapters. These chapters play a key role in demonstrating the vision and mission of the Association. Each chapter has a unique way to provide community outreach, fundraising, and professional development for their members. The President of each chapter is responsible for leading their chapter with all chapter activities. Chapter leaders also serve on the Executive Board of SNAAZ, and often are asked to serve on committees.

Chapter fundraising is an important function for chapters. Each year, the School Nutrition Association of Arizona gives each of its Chapters an opportunity to earn up to $1,000 to help supplement their funds. The requirements are pretty easy to fulfill and each goal has a specific value associated with it.
What Our Members Have to Say
My membership has afforded me the ability to stay up with the proposed regulations happening in congress that affect the school nutrition industry. And with the help of other state members, I have had the chance to help reorganize a chapter that has been disabled for 20+ years.

Jasmine SwierLaveen School District
When I first got into the school nutrition, it was recommended to join SNAAZ. I am so glad I did. I have met some of my best friends through SNAAZ. When I became a director I was so fortunate to have a group of fantastic directors mentor me and help me get through my first year as a new director.
