TASN provides resources that enhance and promote non-profit child nutrition programs for the benefit of our school children.
Training and Certification
For more than 20 years, TASN has undertaken a certification program to help school nutrition professionals continue their education and reach career goals. College courses, workshops sponsored by the Texas Department of Agriculture, and TASN training seminars can be used toward certification. These programs not only improve the value of service to school children, but they enhance members' earning potential and career development.
Scholarships for Continuing Education
Texas Association for School Nutrition awards a number of scholarships annually to deserving members. These scholarships help pay for a variety of educational opportunities ranging from college courses to training towards certification.
Sharing Information Through Networking
One of the greatest benefits of membership in TASN is the abundance of opportunities to share ideas and experiences with other professionals in both structured and informal settings. The wealth of information and assistance available to all members helps raise the level of performance and service to children across the state.
Members have access to career advancement opportunities, and TASN's job bank provides directors with a ready source of qualified workers.
