The Children Nutrition Programs (CNP) Calendar is designed to inform stakeholders of all training events offered by the OSSE CNP team, while creating a culture of professional development within organizations. A few of the key features stakeholders can expect from the CNP Calendar include easy access to upcoming trainings and workshops, detailed information about all training events, on the spot registration, and the ability to add training to your personal calendar so you never miss a CNP training event. The CNP team is committed to providing the highest quality training and resource materials to all stakeholders in the District of Columbia.
Using the CNP Calendar:
