presented by Nancy Rice, M.Ed., RDN, LD, SNS State Director of School Nutrition - Georgia Department of Education Past President, School Nutrition Association 2010-2011 GSNA President 2000-2001
Our General Sessions will feature State School Nutrition Director, Nancy Rice with an exploration of servant leadership as illustrated in the book, "The Servant: A Simple Story About the True Essence of Leadership."

Join us as we aim to strengthen the relationships between school nutrition and industry professionals during this 2 day event.
