SNA Important Update: National Member Dues Increase Effective October 1, 2016


Recently, the SNA Board of Directors approved a national member dues increase, which will go into effect on October 1, 2016. As part of the governance changes passed by the SNA Delegate Assembly in 2015, national member dues increases are now approved by the SNA Board of Directors and may occur if needed every other year (only in even years), with a maximum of a 10% increase.

This dues increase will allow SNA to provide and sustain enhanced member benefits, support important advocacy efforts such as #StoptheBlock, and help cover the general increased costs of doing business. In the coming months, SNA members can look forward to additional professional development opportunities including more FREE webinars to help earn CEUS and meet USDA Professional Standards training requirements.

Dues will increase as follows:

  • Affiliate Employee/Affiliate Retired: From $16 to $17
  • Employee/Student/ Retired: From $30 to $33
  • Manager: From $32 to $35
  • Director/Major City Director/Educator/State Agency/Other: From $110 to $120

Please note that there are also increases to the SNS Credential fees, as follows:

  • SNS Renewal: from $65 to $70 (member) / $160 to $175 (non-member)
  • SNS Annual Maintenance: from $65 to $70 (member) / $160 to $175 (non-member)
  • SNS Exam Application: from $210 to $225 (member) /$305 to $325 (non-member)
