New Leadership Elected for SNA!


Congratulations to all the winners in the 2020 SNA election!

It was a great year for SNA elections. Turnout was strong to elect new leadership for the SNA Board of Directors and the Leadership Development Committee. Some great leadership talent will be stepping up to lead the association in the years ahead.

A total of 2,550 members voted, or 5.02% of the eligible members. Check out the map that shows voting participation in states across the country during the two-week voting period.

The digital and social media campaigning were in full-swing this year, with creative videos and information being shared by the candidates. We repeated the popular video interviews of candidates for Vice President which were posted on on SNA’s website.

A special thanks to all the 2020 ballot candidates. Each demonstrated professionalism and courage by making this important commitment to serve school nutrition programs and you.

Our school nutrition programs face challenges on many fronts and your SNA leaders provide direction and lead action to protect and strengthen programs for the children you serve. Congratulations to our newly elected leaders!
