The aim of each SNDA chapter should be to successfully fulfill the missions and goals of SNDA. Chapter Presidents are to submit reports in the following sections through the President’s Portal: Finance Management, Service, Membership, Educational Programming, and Alumni/Graduate Networking Relations. In order to remain active, a chapter must submit a report for each standard. The reports will be submitted through the Presidents’ Portal that can be completed throughout the academic year. The Executive Board will also use the Standards Report to select Chapter of the Year.
