In our effort to support our students and the SNEB Foundation scholarship funds, the annual SNEB conference planning committee is hosting the first auction featuring a local food or related item.

Here is how we celebrate your local food scene and the people who make your region unique. Consider the foods that are indigenous to your area, or foods with cultural significance. We also want to consider those makers who keep our food heritage alive, such as recipe authors, woodmakers and potters who shape our utensils or those who create our linens for kitchen and table.  This is an opportunity to feature your communities that shape or set our dining from land or sea to table.

Follow the questions in the form to submit your item.

We are planning to run the auction from October 11 through October 16 (World Food Day) so please submit your item by Wednesday, October 6. The auction will be online at

Please avoid franchised or national items that are readily available. SNEB does not endorse products but we do celebrate farmers, producers and innovators who support a sustainable planet and socially responsible practices. Please contact Jasia Steinmetz with any questions,

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.
