ANC 2014 Expect the BEST in Boston When you register for SNA’s Annual National Conference (ANC), you can expect the BEST: the best education sessions, the best networking opportunities, the best exhibits—and the best general session speakers and entertainment, too! This year, ANC is taking place in Boston, the historic “cradle of liberty,” July 13-16, 2014, and it will bring together school nutrition leaders, allies and entertainers all with one purpose: to inspire, educate and encourage you in your role as dedicated professionals serving America’s children. As ANC kicks off on Sunday, July 13, award-winning actress Viola Davis is sure to captivate conference-goers with her keynote speech during the Opening General Session. Davis will discuss her career and share how overcoming adversities and preconceived biases all have contributed to her development as an artist—and as a strong woman. On Tuesday, July 15, you’ll meet Billy Shore, founder and chief executive officer of Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit committed to ending childhood hunger in America. Shore founded Share Our Strength in 1984 with his sister, Debbie, and a $2,000 cash advance on a credit card. Since then, the organization has raised and invested more than $376 million in the fight against hunger. His fight is your fight, and his presentation is sure to resonate among ANC attendees. The Final General Session will take place on Wednesday, July 16, and it will feature a one-of-a-kind, high-energy performance by Aric Bostick, a motivational speaker, trainer and author. Bostick has spoken to more than a half-million people in nearly every industry, helping leaders and employees get “Fired Up!” about the potential opportunities that the future will bring. And that’s not all! ANC will leave you rocking with a Final Event performance from Huey Lewis and The News! Known as one of America’s great rock ‘n’ roll bands, they incorporate a variety of musical influences, particularly R&B and soul, to create their own unique sound. You’ll enjoy classic Top 10 hits all night long. Any child of the Eighties will remember “The Power of Love,” “Heart of Rock & Roll,” “Stuck With You,” “I Want A New Drug,” “If This Is It” and many other classics. Of course, these great events are the icing on top of everything else ANC has to offer. It’s the best place to reenergize yourself and be prepared for a great new school year. It’s the best opportunity for learning, with nine pre-conference sessions (pre-registration required) and more than 100 education sessions on the topics that matter the most to you. It’s the best source of new products and solutions, which will be on display Monday through Wednesday in the most extensive school nutrition Exhibit Hall—850 booths—in the country! And it’s the best chance to network with your peers from all across the country, making new friends and meeting up with old ones. Need more convincing? Don’t just read about ANC!
