SNACT Education Committee

Request for Professional Development Workshops for Regional Trainings

The Education Committee invites you to submit proposals for presentation at regional trainings for the 2018 – 2019 school year.  Trainings are typically an hour (although longer trainings can be accommodated) and take place during the late afternoon on weekdays at various locations around the state.  Trainers will be paid a stipend for their time and can also receive mileage reimbursement. The Education Committee seeks to offer a robust and comprehensive professional development program which offers a wide variety of engaging topics to meet the needs of its members.

Interested food service professionals should develop and plan their presentations using the USDA Key Areas and Coding document (click for  link). Topics must qualify for attendee CEUs. The Request for Proposals form (click for link-this is a word document) should be completed and submitted by June 1, 2018 to Sue Pinkham, Education Committee Chair at spinkham@bloomfieldschools.org.  For questions, please contact Sue at 860-769-4209.

SNACT's Education Committee is pleased to announce the Spring 2018 Training Schedule
