July 20, 2012 – The SNA Nominating Committee recently met at the Annual National Conference (ANC) in Denver to select a slate of candidates for the 2012 SNA election ballot.
After carefully studying the biographical information, supporting documents and goals for each candidate, 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 2013-15 SNA Board of Directors and Nominating Committee, with the installation to take place at SNA’s 67th Annual National Conference, July 14-17, 2013, in Kansas City, Mo.
The “polls” will be open for SNA members to cast their ballots between October 15 and November 15, 2012. Voting will be conducted online through SNA’s independent election house, which you can access through the SNA website, www.schoolnutrition.org/snaelection. 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 the SNA website for full biographies of all the candidates, as well as more information regarding how you can cast your vote for the future of the Association.
