The SNAG Nominations and Elections Committee is looking for individuals to serve on the Board of Directors. We rely on a volunteer Board of people just like you to help steer our organization. Do you know of someone who might be a good fit for SNAG’s Board? Or have you been thinking of serving yourself? We are especially looking for a student representative! There is an open call for nominations and self-nominations.

We are holding a Zoom meeting on Sunday, February 6, 2022 at 1:00 PM Eastern for anyone wanting information about SNAG Board service. Register for the meeting now. Contact the Committee Chair, Liz Clark, for more information. Duties and responsibilities can be found here. We hope to see you on February 6th!
