ISNA President 2018-2019

I'm very excited for the opportunity to represent the Idaho School Nutrition Association and build on the successes we have already achieved in my role as president.

I look forward to working with the current board to implement the goals established by National SNA.

We as an association want you to have the tools and resources you need to do great things. While we may not be able to provide everything you’d like, we feel responsible for doing all we can to support you.

Our board is committed to providing education and training to the membership. We will start the year with a regional training in the Boise area. Simplot will sponsor a tour of the agriculture fields of Western Idaho and dinner provided by the association on Oct 4, 2018. We will again send representatives to the Legislative Action Conference in Washington DC, February 24-26, 2019. I encourage anyone who has never been to consider adding this event to your schedule in order to advocate for our child nutrition program to our Idaho Legislative Representatives. Our second regional training will be held in Idaho Falls for a tour of the Idahoan with dinner and Kris Myer as our guest speaker on April 4th.  Our Annual Conference in Worley, June 25-27, 2019, this is a time to refuel your knowledge and inspire new ideas.  I also want to encourage you to consider seeking leadership roles within our association.

Thank you for this opportunity and I look forward to our year together!
