The Operator Roundtables and Foodservice Directors Symposium provides an opportunity for senior-level operators to gather with peers within collegiate foodservice and the industry to discuss emerging issues and solutions. Participants will gain insight from industry members to help meet operational performance goals, build and strengthen relationships with industry members and peers, and participate in group facilitated discussions on various topics.

Program Costs

Through the generous and continuing support for member learning from NACUFS industry members, each institution selected will receive a program grant valued at $1,350. The program grant covers the symposium registration fee and hotel for three nights.

Individuals are responsible for covering their own travel expenses, including ground transportation to and from the airport, as well as two lunches and one dinner during the program. The roundtable opening reception, all breakfasts, all breaks and a symposium closing dinner are included.
