Regional Director's Message


Continental Region

October 3, 2016

Greetings from Salt Lake City Utah!

I hope that everyone has had a great start to the new school year. For me it is always nice to have everyone back from a long summer. I thought that my first message would include a formal introduction to you. My name is Nicci Rivetti and I am the Retail Food Service Manager for the Salt Lake Community College in Salt Lake City Utah. I operate retail services in the Student Center building and also concessions for athletics.  Our student base is huge we have over 50,000 students and 20,000 of them are on my campus.  There is always something new and exciting on our campus. I am very excited about this upcoming year with NACUFS in the Continental region.  We have a great council that is preparing activities that will be available for you throughout the year.  Members of our council is a mix from across the region we have folks from North Dakota, Montana, Colorado, and Utah. 

Our Regional Conference this year will be held in Fargo North Dakota February 26th through March 1st. Lisa Gibson from Stanford Health  is our conference chair and has put together a great conference full of education, good food and entertainment. We will have education on Midwestern Plant based diet, energy management, and then it is all about the food. I have heard this conference   referred to as a Culinary Journey!! Sounds exciting please look for registration and agenda details soon on our website. To view our video please visit http://www.nacufs.org/regions-continental/regional-conference1/

Warmest Regards,
