A Message From "STEPHANIE WEAVER" President, 2018-2019

 
Teresa Brown - 2017 - 2018  SNAL President

Welcome to the School Nutrition Association of Louisiana!

I AM BOTH HUMBLED AND HONORED TO SERVE AS THE 2018-2019 SNAL PRESIDENT

There are some new and exciting changes ahead for the 2018-2019 year including our newly updated SNAL bylaws. SNAL Leadership Academy will also continue this year under the leadership of our Immediate Past President - Teresa Brown. We also have several new board members this year that I am sure will help us continue our progress forward. SNA-SNAL Affiliation Agreement was successfully completed with signatures from our Immediate Past President Dr. Lynn Harvey. SNAL will as always continue to monitor our affiliation with them. Our incoming SNAL Board will be reviewing several projects this coming year including SNA's vision for both Ethics and Inclusion. My focus this year is keep SNAL members and Industry partners engaged in SNAL business and progress throughout the year.

Growing Our Membership Base

Did you know SNAL has over 2300 members? Our goal this year is to grow by 3% or even better reach 3,000! My goal is grow our membership one person at a time - find one, recruit one. Growth will come from school districts and members creating awareness about the many benefits of SNA-SNAL membership. We need your help to grow SNA of Louisiana, so spread the word. SNAL membership committee will be visiting districts around the state to encourage and boost membership.

Our Focus

SNAL works really hard to advocate for Child Nutrition Programs. Stay tuned this year to learn about ways you can participate in advocacy efforts at the state or federal level. Your messages and voices are powerful...we will keep you posted through email or Face Book to let you know when that time comes.

SNAL is calling all future leaders! This year, SNAL will hold its Second Leadership Academy. This academy will provide members an opportunity to grow as a leader, learn about governance & parliamentary procedure, group dynamics, and team building.
