General Information

This year we celebrate the SNA of Mass. 66th anniversary.  SNA continues to be your ticket on the road to success as we continue to work to provide our members with a variety of professional development opportunities with local chapter meetings and state conferences while providing valuable networking opportunities with your peers.

Our theme this school year is teamwork, and as we all know it takes an extraordinary team to provide our students with the nutritious and delicious meals they need while balancing federal regulations, food allergies, higher costs, and the various needs of the many communities we serve.  

This conference program provides a unique opportunity to hear from national speakers on current SN legislative issues, to learn how to handle the increasing amount of stress in our lives, and to hear examples of how teamwork can make the dream come true. We have some unique networking opportunities in place this year. So come and join us as we continue the journey – this year we’re taking Route 66 to new heights!

Rooms have been reserved for conference attendees at the Hilton Garden Inn, Worcester. Call 508-753-5700 and mention the SNA of Mass. conference to secure the special rate of $139 for single or double occupancy. Parking is across the street in the covered garage. Please pull behind the hotel to unload your luggage prior to parking your car.

DIRECTIONS DCU Center, 50 Foster Street, Worcester, MA 01608 For directions: For parking information and additional options:


SNA has secured a flat rate of $5.00 per day in the Major Taylor Blvd. Municipal Garage - 30 Major Taylor Blvd. (diagonally across from the DCU Center) on the corner of Major Taylor Blvd. and MLK Jr. Blvd. (formerly Central St.) off of exit 16 from Rt. 290.

Use Google Maps for directions. DO NOT USE THE GARAGE MAILING ADDRESS IN Mapquest or in your GPS. It will not bring you to the correct location for the garage entrance. The entrance is on MLK Jr. Blvd on the right just before Major Taylor Blvd. If you must use an address in Google maps try 98 MLK Jr. Blvd but it doesn’t always perfectly work since the entrance is not a mailing address.

When you arrive you will get a ticket from the entrance gate dispenser. Take this ticket with you when you leave your car! When you arrive at the conference you will receive your discount ticket at the registration desk. Remember to keep both tickets. You will need both to get the discount when you pay for parking. When you leave the conference you must stop at the APS (Automated Pay Stations) in the Level 1 lobby of the garage on the corner of Major Taylor Blvd and MLK Jr. Blvd. Insert your original parking ticket first… then the discount ticket! 


This year’s dinner will be held at the beautiful Mechanic’s Hall, a short walk from the convention center.  We will be celebrating the 2016-17 award winners and presenting the industry member of the year award.  Plan now to compete in this year’s lip syncing contest!  Put together a team or go solo. There will be prizes and plenty of fun!  Dinner is included with a full conference registration. If you are registering for only day one or day two and would like to attend this dinner, please register for the dinner as well. Thank you to Mechanic's Hall for their support of this special event!
