Cheshire Public School District’s Madeleine C. Diker was recently selected to participate in School Nutrition Association’s (SNA) exclusive Executive Management Program, taught by top ranked faculty members of Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. On Saturday, March 3, Madeleine Diker participated in the program, “Meeting the Bottom Line: A Strategic Approach to Managing Change.”
School nutrition programs across the country face historic challenges as they rise to meet tough new federal nutrition standards, while managing increasing participation, complex regulations, evolving technology and more. The invitation-only Executive Management Program, led by experts in the field of Change Management, is designed to assist participants in developing a solid framework for leading change. The day-long session, offered free of charge, taught the keys to identifying and implementing strategic steps to develop a change management framework.
“More than ever before, school meal programs require organizational leaders, armed with the skills to address challenges and lead their teams to success,” said SNA CEO Frank DiPasquale. “SNA is pleased to offer the Executive Management Program to provide leaders in school nutrition with proven strategies to strengthen their programs.”
School Nutrition Association (SNA) is a national, non-profit professional organization representing 55,000 school nutrition professionals across the country. The 2012 SNA Executive Management Program was made possible by generous grants from school foodservice industry leaders: Kellogg’s Food Away From Home, Schwan’s Food Service, SFSPac Food Service Sanitation Systems, and Tyson Foods, Inc.
