GOVERNANCE SNA FILLS BOARD VACANCY On Thursday, March 30, 2017, At-Large Director Mark Bordeau resigned from the SNA Board of Directors to pursue a leadership opportunity with the New York School Nutrition Association (NYSNA). Bordeau was elected in 2016 to a two-year term through July 2018. Upon a review of the Bylaws, the SNA Board voted to appoint current At-Large Director Lilly Bouie to complete Bordeau’s term, and former SNA Board member Ariane Shanley to complete Bouie’s original one-year term through July 2017. Shanley was a candidate on the 2016 Election Ballot for At-Large Director; she served as SNA Northwest Regional Director in 2010-12. In October 2016, the SNA Board approved a Standards of Business Conduct/Conflict of Interest Policy that precludes SNA Board members from serving simultaneously on the board of a state affiliate. At press time, Bordeau, senior director of foodservices for the Broome-Tioga Board of Cooperative Educational Services in upstate New York, was standing for election as a candidate for vice president on the current NYSNA ballot; that election concluded May 1.
