SNA Leadership Help Wanted: Board Nominations Now Open Have you (or someone you know) considered taking the next step in your commitment as a school nutrition professional? SNA is seeking qualified candidates for its national Board of Directors. These leaders play an integral role in guiding the future of the Association, as well as the school nutrition profession as a whole. If you or a colleague is up for both the challenges and the rewards of leadership, it’s time to step forward! Open positions on the Board of Directors for the Fall 2013 election include vice president, secretary/treasurer, Northeast regional director, Northwest regional director, Southwest regional director, school nutrition employee/manager representative, state agency representative, Member Services Committee chair and Nutrition Committee chair. Representatives are also sought to serve on the SNA Nominating Committee from the Mideast, Midwest, Southeast and West regions. The positions will be elected in Fall 2013 and be installed at the 2014 Annual National Conference (ANC) in Boston. To propose a name—including your own!—send an e-mail containing the nominee’s contact information to Nominating Committee Staff Liaison Jean Geraghty at jgeraghty@ schoolnutrition.org. Submissions must be received by May 30, 2013. The Nominating Committee will meet in Kansas City, Mo., in July just prior to ANC 2013 to select the candidate slate. ANC 2013 Sweepstakes Sharing the Love for School Nutrition You know that there are as many reasons to love this profession as there are the number of kids you feed!
