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.
Number of Delegates per School of Nursing... Coming SOON!
**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.**
