School District Owned Membership: A membership that is owned by a school district (or state agency) in the name of an individual. This membership can be transferred to another employee in the same membership category if the original member/person leaves the district. SDM allows you to group all of your memberships together so that you can receive one invoice for all of your renewals once or twice a year (or as requested).The SDM is managed by a designated administrator within the school district (or state agency). SDM members still receive all the same benefits of individual membership. For more information, please visit: For a full guide about SDM, please visit:



"Being a member of the New York School Nutrition Association has enabled me to network with incredible people that share the same passion I have for school nutrition while also giving many educational opportunities through scholarships that made it possible for me to go back to school to earn my master's degree."

Julie Raway, RD, CDN, SNS, Registered Dietitian, Broome Tioga BOCES

"As a Director of Food Service I appreciate New York School Nutrition Association and being a member of this professional organization. The association has given to me valuable information, guidance and assistance and has provided me learning opportunities I would not have found anywhere else.
NYSNA's legislative action is extremely important to the operation of school nutrition programs in New York State. By being on top of legislative movement that could impact programs, lobbying for positive change and providing opportunity for the members to be directly involved, the value of being a member is unmeasurable. I proud to say I am a member of such an elite organization that truly is what their mission statement says "To Promoting Excellence In Child Nutrition!"

Nancy Younglove, Food Service Director, North Rose Wolcott Central School

"As a professional working in the field of school nutrition it is so important to stay abreast of the changes and trends in school meals. Being a member of NYSNA provides me with a variety of resources and contacts at your fingertips to help manage the challenges I face in my position. Membership comes with a variety of educational training opportunities which will be especially important with certification requirements and one of the biggest benefits is all the people you meet in the association from all over the state that all share a common bond...a passion for feeding kids. I am not in this alone there are so many people that I can network with to come up with ways to address the challenges this profession faces."

Debbi Beauvais, RDN SNS, District Supervisor of School Nutrition, Gates Chili, East Rochester & East Irondequoit Schools
