NSSNA Committee Application
NSSNA Committees are vital to the function and longevity of the organization. Student leaders from all SNA chapters are encouraged to apply. Committee descriptions are listed in the committee application, as well as the deadline for application submission. Committees are a great way to get involved on a state level and explore national involvement. Commitment will be from time of committee selection until the date of the annual convention in the spring. Some committees are limited in the number of members, so there is an option to select your top three choices. We will do our best to accommodate everyone, but there is no guarantee you will get your first choice. We would love to include as many members as we possibly can! Please reach out to the board if you have any questions!
