SNA Election

The SNA Nominating Committee met at the 2014 Annual National Conference (ANC) in Boston, Mass., to select a slate of candidates for the 2014 SNA Election.

After carefully studying the biographical information, as well as supporting documents such as the candidates’ goals and recommendations submitted by colleagues on their competencies, the Nominating Committee selected the official slate of candidates (see below) for the ballot. The winners of this year’s election will serve on the 2015-17 SNA Board of Directors and Nominating Committee, with the installation to take place at SNA’s 69th Annual National Conference, July 12-15, 2015, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The “polls” will be open for SNA members to cast their ballots between October 15 and November 15, 2014. Voting will be conducted online through SNA’s independent election house, which you can access through this page, You can feel confident that the election is a secure process, as it requires all members to enter their membership numbers prior to voting and ensures that each member only votes one time.

If the Association is to continue serving as the voice of child nutrition programs (in the United States and around the world), it’s critical that you participate in the selection of your future leaders. Stay tuned to this page for more information regarding how you can cast your vote. The newly elected candidates will be announced in late November. For questions, please contact SNA.
