State AmbassadorsIn the past, SNF had representatives in each state. To renew that program and to spread the word about the Foundation and its programs, the SNF State Ambassador program was launched in 2016. As of October 12, forty-three states have SNF Ambassadors. The ambassadors have helped at ANC, and have made presentations at state conferences and meetings. The impact is a positive one! The 2016 Annual Fund is ahead of 2015 by 49% as of September 1.
