May 30, 2018

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about procurement ethics, as part of SNA’s new programming School Nutrition Ethics: What Should You Do? Ethics play a major role in procurement and procurement ethics are critical to your School Nutrition Program. Procurement professionals must conduct their business practices in the most ethical manner. Failing to abide to ethical practices can lead to damaging situations for you, your program and your staff.
