We invite you all to join us as we sail away to Ocean City for the MdSNA 68th Annual Convention. Our theme of “Charting the NEW Course of Child Nutrition” is particularly relevant given the work that you as Child Nutrition Professionals have done since Friday the 13th! We are all very excited to be welcoming all of you to back to an in-person meeting. 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.
