Committees

In order to do its work, the Foundation Board has established Committees composed of both Board members and other volunteers from the community. Generally, Committees are led by Board members and meet on an as needed basis. Meetings are often virtual or via telephone. The SNC Executive Director or designee serves as liaison to the Board and several Committees. Typical Committees are the Events, Nominations, Development, Finance, Executive, and Communications Committee.
