A message from your President,
Well, most all school corporations are winding down for the 2016-17 school year. It truly amazes me that the school year flies by so fast! Everyone I talk to is saying the same thing, “this year has gone faster than any other!”
With that being said, our work is never done regardless if school is in or out. Many corporations have some type of summer feeding programs and are starting to gear up for next school year. So, I don’t know about you, but it cracks me up when people ask, “Are you off all summer?” And if you do work throughout the summer months they ask, “What do you do all summer?”
This leads me into other activities that have kept me busy with ISNA during my Presidency. I attended the School Nutrition Association’s Legislative Action Conference (LAC) in Washington, D.C. from April 1st through the 4th. I must say that LAC is one of, if not, THE most exciting conferences that I attend! The speakers were great and, of course, Charging the Hill was just as exciting as all the other times I have done so. We had a great group of people from Indiana that attended and it was great to see several new faces as well.
At the beginning of May, I attended the National Leadership Conference in Baltimore, MD. This is a conference designed to provide attendees the opportunity to develop critical skills in leading a nonprofit association, network with other state and national SNA leaders from across the country, and gain new insights into becoming more effective and engaging leaders.
In July, I will travel to Atlanta for SNA’s Annual National Conference (ANC). I hope to see many Indiana faces at this super conference as well.
I have been given so many wonderful opportunities since beginning my leadership journey with ISNA. Representing the great state of Indiana as your President has been a privilege for which I am truly grateful!
