2022 SNAPA Proposed Bylaw Amendments

The School Nutrition Association of Pennsylvania Board of Directors recommends amendments to Article IV, Section A and Article IV, Section B of the SNAPA bylaws in order to expand the opportunity for SNAPA members to engage in leadership roles in SNAPA. 

Article IX, Section B of the SNAPA bylaws states, "These bylaws may be amended by a majority vote of eligible members present and voting at any meeting; or responding to an official ballot, provided that copies of the proposed changes were sent to all eligible members at least thirty (30) days in advance of the call for the vote."

SNAPA members will be able to vote on the proposed bylaw amendments by electronic ballot starting on May 27, 2022. More information will be shared with eligible voters.
