Becoming a member of the SNA-SC executive board is an invaluable experience in which students have the opportunity to get involved in a higher level of leadership. As a state board member, students can improve their professional development to lead and mentor other student nurses across the state. In the Candidate Packet, linked above, you will find details related to the positions that we will be electing at the state convention. In addition, you can find applications for the state board positions.

The deadline to be considered a Pre-Slated Candidate is February 1st, 2022 at 11:59pm. Candidates that are pre-slated will be able to submit with their application a recorded video to be published on SNA-SC's social media and sent out to constituents to start their campaigning in the new virtual setting. Candidate can submit applications up until the day before convention, but they will not be able to campaign until the are slated by the NEC Director.

Interested candidates that may have missed the deadlines will have only one opportunity to run from the floor during the the House of Delegates meeting Saturday, March 19th at 1:30pm (Time subject to change!). At the end of the HOD meeting candidate will be expected to present themselves to the attendees, so please come prepared with a speaker and ready to answer questions from attendees and current Executive Board members.

ARE YOU A DELEGATE?

Parliamentary Procedures Video | Delegate Packet COMING SOON!

Delegates are responsible for electing the best possible state officers for the Executive Board of SNA-SC. Delegates are encouraged to seek the opinions of their constituents present at the meeting in helping to arrive at appropriate decisions. Delegates are also responsible for discussing and voting on proposed resolutions submitted by the states' school chapters and SNA-SC. Delegates will discuss and vote on any proposed changes to the SNA-SC's Bylaws that are recommended by the Executive Board.


DELEGATES' CREDENTIALING DEADLINES

The deadline to enroll and/or update your NSNA Membership to be counted towards delegate numbers for your school is January 28th, 2022 at 11:59pm.


**At SNA-SC Annual Convention 2020, the House of Delegates voted to update SNA-SC Bylaws in regards to the number of delegates. SNA-SC now bases the number of delegates on the percentage of total nursing/pre-nursing students your school has in its SNA chapter. Please ensure the ease of your school chapter's participation in the House of Delegates by reminding your Faculty Advisors that SNA-SC needs the number of total enrolled nursing and pre-nursing students on your campus (not just the SNA members). This information can be sent from a faculty member's school email to SNA-SC's Ethics & Governance Director at EGDirector@SNA-SC.org.**
