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.  The SNEB Bylaws (2.4) state that:  Members of the corporation may initiate and submit for a vote by the membership resolutions regarding matters on which the members advocate that the corporation take a position or action or advocate that the corporation establish a policy.

An individual, group of SNEB members, SNEB Division or SNEB committee may submit a resolution for consideration by the membership. SNEB members serving on the Board of Directors or who are a Board Member-Elect will not be eligible to author, or be a signatory on, any resolutions during their terms in office.   

Drafters are encouraged to prepare concise, well-organized resolutions.  See examples of previous resolutions online. To make a resolution readable and easy to understand, authors may not wish to include every rationale or fact that supports the proposed motion.  Authors are welcome to provide longer statements during the comment process, especially if the topic is complex, to help assure that members can make a well-informed judgment about the resolution.

To continue to foster this commitment to DEI, SNEB has committed to developing a repository of DEI resources that members may use to guide the work they are doing. The committee's initial thought for the repository is that it may contain resources used directly with the audiences for whom we provide nutrition education, as well as training resources for staff and students. Additions can represent work done by or that is supportive of food-, food system-, food sector-, and nutrition-related practitioners, academics, researchers, policymakers, government officials, and advocates. Examples include research with disaggregated demographic data and analysis; tools used in nutrition education to make the space more inclusive; advocacy tools to create more diverse spaces, or guidance for academics to center justice in their research and teaching. In addition, resources available to provide accurate and culturally relevant translations of materials for various target audiences are also welcomed. Additions will be reviewed and categorized to ensure that the SNEB membership finds the repository appropriate, useful, and relevant.
