SNACT's 2018 Conference and

69th Annual Food and Industry Trade Show



Friday Nov. 2 and Saturday Nov. 3, 2018


Focus on the Future

Success is not final.  Failure is not fatal.

Fox Tower, Foxwoods Resort


We've put together a great conference line up- information and interactive sessions that will give you the tools you need now! 

Conference Highlights include:

Failing Forward into a Fruitful Future by Keynote Speaker Jeff Joiner

Most people are terrified to fail and, as a result, they never attempt to try new things. In reality, nothing extraordinary has ever been accomplished without plenty of failure along the way.  In this dynamic session, Jeff Joiner will teach you to fail productively: learning from failure

Jeff has been an ANC keynote speaker 3 times and spoken to over 25 SNA state affiliates! We are excited to welcome him back to CT. Prepare to be motivated!

Data: You’ve Got It, Learn to Use It

These days everyone’s talking about data. Your program generates hundreds or thousands of data points each day, so why not put it to work? Join Dr. Keith Rushing, the Director of the Institute of Child Nutrition (ICN) Applied Research Division and learn how to utilize your program’s data to decrease costs and drive profits.

We’re bringing the best of ANC to CT!
