Affiliates & Collaborations


SNEB Affiliates are local, state or regional organizations of nutrition and allied professionals that support the mission, vision, values, and goals of SNEB. Through this partnership, both SNEB and the Affiliates gain the mutual benefits of group expertise and knowledge; local, regional and national networks, and resource sharing among affiliates and SNEB. Each Affiliate has its own structure, bylaws, officers and activities. As such, the information contained on these pages represents the position and/or opinion of the Affiliate and not SNEB. If you are interested in becoming an SNEB Affiliate, contact Rachel Daeger at or click here for more information.
