Professional Standards - There will be many opportunities to earn your USDA professional standards hours!

Prior to the Friday Night Party, local presidents and Silver Circle members will celebrate their successful year of service at this cocktail hour reception. Presidents will receive a special invitation by email from FSNA.
Saturday General Session - Because this event has the largest audience, it will now include the incoming local presidents' walk, local presidents' awards (while visuals of their achievements are shown on screen), and a showcase of the incoming FSNA president's logo!
Take a Chance/Resource Room - Will be located in the Exhibit Hall. Exhibitors who have made donations to the Take a Chance will have ticket boxes at their booths.
Saturday Night Gala - New Saturday Night Banquet format! Attire is dressy. Mingle with friends in an open-seating venue (no assigned seating), enjoy a delicious buffet, congratulate the SNA award winners and celebrate the installation of your new FSNA board members! Of course there will still be drawings for three, $300 gift cards from the evaluation forms you complete at the sessions.
*Silver Circle refers to FSNA members who are retired and/or FSNA members who have been in school food service for 25 years or more.
