It's almost here! This year the School Nutrition Association is taking their Annual National Conference to Vegas.

From sharing bright ideas in educational seminars to visiting over 800 vendors at exhibition, this year's event is sure to keep you busy!

Here's a few things you won't want to miss at this year's Annual National Conference:
