Candidates for the 2016-2017 National Executive Committee

The SDA National Nominating Committee worked diligently throughout the year to fulfill the responsibilities entrusted to the committee by the membership. The National Nominating committee reached out to several eligible SDA members and would like to thank each candidate who took the time to speak with us about their future leadership goals. We also initiated a campaign to promote the eligibility criteria amongst all members to help ensure all members are familiar with their Leadership Path within SDA, which will hopefully culminate in service at the executive committee level.  Read more here...
