Foodservice Directors Symposium

San Antonio, Texas
January 24-27, 2017

New Engagement Format for 2017!

NACUFS invites two senior-level collegiate foodservice leaders (directors, associate directors and/or assistant directors) from each of 15 self-operated member schools to attend the operator roundtables and foodservice directors symposium at the Hilton Palacio Del Rio in San Antonio, Texas.

As in previous years, the operator roundtables will provide senior-level leaders opportunities to engage with industry members committed to helping the C&U segment meet their dining excellence and operational goals. A reception and light dinner are planned for the evening of January 24, followed by a day of roundtables on January 25.

Following the roundtables, the 15 selected member schools will attend the foodservice directors symposium January 26-27. The symposium will include facilitated dialogue around Mega Issues facing your operation, your campus, and the foodservice industry. As in previous years, participants will have input into discussion topics.  Possible topics may include:
