Message From President Anita Trautwein

It has been a busy year so far- Regional Industry seminars were conducted around the state and we had some new vendors sign up. The vendors did a great job displaying and showcasing the products they will have available for us in the upcoming school year. 

School Nutrition Professionals from New York attended the National Legislative Conference this past March. Nancy Younglove, NYSNA member, received the SNA Hero Award in Washington, D.C.  There were five recipients from across the country, and we are so proud of Nancy for her work with the Cougar Cupboard, and her community involvement feeding children.

This spring, Area Directors are holding their Area Workshops across the state.  A great deal of effort is put into these workshops, and everyone's support is needed to make them successful. I encourage all of you to attend your local area workshop to learn and network with other School Nutrition Professionals.

I will be traveling to the SNA Leadership Conference in April where the SNA strategic plans will be discussed. Networking with directors from all over the country will enable the sharing of success stories that will be beneficial for districts.

NYSNA will be holding their strategic planning in May to set the association goals for the next four years to align with the SNA pillars. This will be a two-day event, and we have a great committee of volunteers to start this process.

The State is rolling out, "Beyond Professional Cooking" this summer with training for managers and directors that need assistance with their programs. This program will be held in Verona, NY in the month of July - check the NYSED or NYSNA websites for more details on how to sign up.

Thank you all for this opportunity to serve as your President of NYSNA. It has been a great year so far!‚Äč
