Since the early days of SNEB, there has been support among the membership for the Society to take an active role in educating members about nutrition policy. The membership has supported establishing and maintaining an active public policy program. The resolutions process is one of the mechanisms for members, or groups of members, to bring forth policy positions for discussion and vote by the membership. Resolutions provide a route for members to propose that SNEB adopt a position, take an action, or endorse a policy or principles in a formal manner. Learn more about the resolutions process. The process has been revised to inspire members to propose new resolutions. Click to see a summary of the changes.
Active Resolutions are posted on our blog. To comment on an active Resolution, visit the News section of the website to find the latest blog post. Note: only SNEB members are allowed to comment on Resolutions, so be sure to log into your profile first.
