Announcements & Resources

National Month of Service - October 2016

Look for more information regarding SNMA's 2016 National Week of Service. Details will be available in August.

Service Grant

The purpose of the SNMA Community Service Grant Program is to encourage local chapters to develop student-initiated service projects. By providing financial assistance to our chapters, this program aims to increase participation in community service across the nation. Chapter projects should comply with the mission of the SNMA and should ideally seek to fulfill the National Health Education & Disease Prevention and Pipeline Programs Service Protocols. Any chartered SNMA chapter is eligible to apply. Two (2) chapters will be selected as recipients of a monetary award to aid their efforts.

Our goals include: assisting in the implementation and publicity of the SNMA's community service protocols and community service outreach efforts, overseeing accurate tracking and documentation of protocols and other projects, and working with and supervising the efforts of individual protocol/initiative coordinators. If you feel as though you can contribute to helping us achieve our goals, please submit the following application, as it is required in order to become an official member of the committee. National Committee Application

For ideas on how to participate in each protocol, feel free to utilize our Protocol Handbook and accompanying presentation. Look out for the new Protocol Handbook for the 2016-2017 year in July.

How Can My Chapter Participate?
SNMA chapters are encouraged to use these protocols on their campuses!
For more information and instructions on how your chapter can participate in SNMA protocols, please email communityservice@snma.org or your regional director (see BOD directory).

Deadlines / Reporting
Each quarter, SNMA chapters are required to submit Chapter Report Forms detailing activities. This helps us seek grants to help the regions and chapters continue service, as well as keep us abreast of SNMA activities nationwide.
