Leadership Team Structure
ASNNA is led by a group of seven volunteer members from agencies and organizations administering SNAP-Ed, referred to as the ASNNA Leadership Team. Elected Team members represent a diversity of sectors including state government, academic, public health and nonprofit organizations, with the by-laws directing balanced representation across types of organizations and geography. This strong weave of representation gives tremendous strength to ASNNA’s voice at the national level.
Leadership Team members are elected at the Annual Conference in Arlington, VA each February. At the 2019 conference, voting members will elect three individuals to serve a two-year term.
Key Responsibilities for the Leadership Team
- Regularly scheduled Leadership Team calls: the schedule for calls will depend on Leadership Team members, but are typically twice monthly for one hour. Flexibility for call timing is important, as Leadership Team represents multiple time zones.
- Quarterly membership calls: LT plans and hosts quarterly membership calls that are approximately one hour.
- ASNNA Sub-Committees: Leadership Team members serve on ASNNA sub-committees including Advocacy, Evaluation, Social Media and Marketing and Annual Conference Planning. Ad-Hoc committee representation may also be requested.
Ideally, Leadership Team members have in-depth knowledge of SNAP-Ed, as Leadership Team members will be called upon to review ASNNA correspondence and to participate in drafting positions and communications to policy makers and state agencies. However, being part of Leadership Team is also an excellent opportunity to learn how SNAP-Ed is implemented across multiple states, territories, and regions.
Thank you for considering this important opportunity to ensure ASNNA can continue to support States as they implement SNAP-Ed and most importantly support the health and well-being of the communities we serve.
