Anchors Aweigh!

We invite you all to join us as we sail away to Ocean City for the MdSNA 68th Annual Convention.

We will go back to our roots – which for Maryland School Nutrition Association means holding the event at the Roland Powell Ocean City Convention Center. The convention center has completed the renovations and is ready for us.
Our Industry Partners are ready to navigate the seas of uncertainty.

There is so much that has changed on both sides of the tasting tray. Our vendors are ready to bring out those samples and show us their new products and concepts. Let’s be sure to visit all of them so that we don’t miss any exciting new ideas!
 
Our keynote speaker, Tami West, SNS, is ready to cheer us on as we return to our cafeterias. She is a fun and inspiring speaker. Tami will also be sharing her motivating message during a breakout ed session.

We will learn some new skills, discover new ways to spice up our traditional favorites and de-stress our lives!
We will elect our new board members who will lead us through the next few years and honor our chapters for their Plan of Work.

To close us out – we will meet at the popular Seacrets to relax, enjoy some good food and beverages and network with our colleagues from around the state.

Click the link to register online for an early-bird discount. Bring a friend and meet us at the beach.

Don't miss Our Keynote Speaker, Tami West, and these excellent professional development sessions!

WHERE SHOULD I STAY? 

Whether you are planning on attending both the MdSNA association training and House of Delegates activities on Friday as well as the full convention schedule on Saturday, or just coming to the convention events on Saturday, consider getting a hotel room and extending your stay and building in some extra-curricular time at the beach. Ocean City has so much to offer. Enjoy these hotel discounts when making your reservation. RSVP by September 5th.

VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE CALL THE HOTELS DIRECTLY RATHER THAN USING ONLINE BOOKING SYSTEMS. IDENTIFY YOURSELF AS A MEMBER OF MDSNA TO RECEIVE THE DISCOUNTED ROOM RATES.

Please remember that SunFest, one of Ocean City's biggest attractions plus the Teachers Association are also in Ocean City at the same time as we are and rooms are filling fast.  Since we have a food show planned, vendors are also seeking rooms. As soon as you are sure you can attend please reserve your hotel room to be sure you can get one at a reasonable rate.
