Conference Banquet & Installation of 2022-23 Officers

The Conference Banquet and Installation of Officers is a very special event where we honor and say goodbye to our current President, and then welcome our incoming President and Board of Directors.

As everyone already knows, NYSNA’s Annual Conference was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic. Cancelling these events not only stopped us from being together in-person but also prevented us from honoring two of our President’s – Mark Bordeau (2019-2020) and Susan Bell (2020-2021).

Our current President, Donna Riviello has made the decision to share her special night at this year’s Annual Conference with Mark and Sue, so that they finally have the opportunity for a proper sendoff.

Please join us at this year’s Conference Banquet to honor not one, but three NYSNA Presidents.


Mark Bordeau (2019-2020)          Susan Bell (2020-2021)          Donna Riviello (2021-2022)

All conference attendees will have access to the first ever digital book that will include exhibitor videos from the tradeshow floor AND additional programming for even more CEU’s! Programming will be pre-recorded mini workshops focused on Ideas @ Work. These fast-paced sessions are focused on singular innovations and presented by the school nutrition operators who created them.
