Asking people for their hard-earned cash is never easy which makes SNF Ambassadors’ job that much more difficult – and important. Three years ago the SNF Ambassador Program was created to provide an opportunity for SNA State Affiliates (Associations) to support the Foundation that provides education, research and scholarships to their members. SNF Ambassadors not only help raise funds for the Foundation, but also help spread the word about what SNF does for SNA members. Everything from increasing the number of professional development programs to providing a variety of scholarships is at the core of SNF’s mission.
Be sure to look for your State Ambassador at your conferences and meetings throughout the year. They are there to share the SNF mission and provide you with information on the resources SNF provides. Each one received “Tips, Tools & Talking Points” to help with their fundraising efforts as well as SNF pins, ribbons and other SNF items to encourage individual contributions.
2019 brings back some healthy competition among the states culminating in national recognition at The Red Carpet Awards at ANC 2020. The top state in each membership category that raises the most money for the Foundation in 2019 will win invitations to SNA’s 2020 ANC Networking Reception, one free ANC 2020 registration to bring back to their state, and, of course, bragging rights for the year.
