Why should SND members vote for Kord?
It's a privilege to run on a ballot with three quality candidates for secretary/treasurer, Luis Chumpitaz Gonzales, Adonis Durado and Lee Steele, and the possibility of serving another term with Rob Schneider is very appealing. Frankly speaking, any of us will serve SND and the membership well. We all understand that giving our time to SND is not only an investment in our own careers, but it's also an investment in the careers of those who follow, and a repayment for the kindnesses of those who preceded us.
That's why I'm not asking for your vote. But I am asking you to vote.

How the SND voting process works
A professional society can only serve its membership if the members participate. And the most fundamental way you can participate is to cast an informed vote. Here's how SND's election works:
- September: Members will receive voting instructions in early Sept. via email through SND's elections coordinator, vote-now.com. The ballot will be open through midnight, Oct. 11. Only current members will receive ballot emails and be able to vote. If your membership has lapsed or you want to join SND, sign up today.
- Oct. 12: Election results will be announced at the business meeting in Cleveland.
- Jan. 1, 2013: The elected officers will begin their terms Jan. 1, 2013.
Is your membership current?
To me, SND membership has always had tremendous and incalculable value as a networking tool, as a trigger for creative thought and a resource to help solve work-related problems. Some other benefits of membership:
- An SND membership will help you become a better journalist — and you can only vote if you’re a member.
- SND offers annual and multi-year memberships for professionals and annual memberships for students.
- Join or renew NOW for your vote to be counted.
