Member Benefits

**Alert to all SNS Members: February 28, 2013 will be the last day the Yahoo SNS electronic mail list will be functioning.  Beginning March 1, 2013, LinkedIn will be the electronic communication tool for SNS members.  If you were previously participating in the Yahoo group or are interested in joining the new SNS LinkedIn group, follow these simple instructions.  If you are not already a member of LinkedIn, you will first need to create a profile to participate with the SNS group.

Member Benefits:

  • Nutrition Link e-newsletter
  • Timely information about Academy news, SNS DPG events, and school nutrition legislation and policy, through e-blasts.
  • Two-way communication with other members through LinkedIn
  • Webinars on current topics, available for CPEs
  • Networking events at SNA's Annual National Conference and the Academy's Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo
  • Opportunities to receive awards and scholarships offered through SNS DPG 

Student Members:

Students experience all the same benefits as active RD and DTR members, at half the price! Student members who are interested in school nutrition careers may want to apply for one of the dietetic internships with emphasis on school nutrition.

SNS DPG also developed a webinar series for students in 2011-2012. Webinar recordings and FAQs are available here.

The next student-focused webinar is scheduled for spring 2013.
