Come to Sacramento and meet with California's top leaders on how to address the serious funding crisis that exists so we can preserve funding for Child Nutrition.

CSNA has become a powerful voice in Sacramento. Building effective alliances with other organizations that share our vision and maintaining a credible presence with elected officials is fundamental to the success of Child Nutrition Programs. CSNA has made great strides in advancing Child Nutrition Program issues at the state legislative level. In this time of budget crisis, we need to work together to make sure the funding we have fought for is not cut.

The members of the California School Nutrition Association Public Policy and Legislative Committee cordially invite you to attend the annual state Legislative Action Conference. This year's conference will be held January 29-31, at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento. The committee is in the process of constructing an exciting program packed with informative speakers, great food, and visits with your legislators.

The conference will open at 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 29th, and will conclude with legislative visits on Tuesday. (see detailed agenda below, and check back often for the most up-to-date information)

The PP&L Committee is working hard to construct a memorable conference. As a child nutrition professional, your voice is critical in shaping public policy. Don't miss this extraordinary event.
