How is SCNA organized? How does SCNA cover all of North America?
The association is operated through a Board of Directors - the officers, President, Vice-President, Executive Secretary, Treasurer, Past President, and the Incorporator, Jerry Schexnayder, who comprise a seven (7)-member board. The Officers of the association through the Executive Board - the President, Vice President, Executive Secretary and the Treasurer, handle issues that require immediate attention. Nine (9) standing committees and three (3) temporary/special committees have the responsibility of keeping up with matters of importance to the association and the membership at large. They report their findings and recommendations to the President and the BOD. Refer to the Constitution -- Art. 5 - Organizational Structure: Officers/Executive Board; Board of Directors and Committees for specifics and broader description of each. And, refer to the By-Laws -- Art. 3 - Duties of Officers, BOD, State (or Provincial) Reps., Dist. Club Reps., and Dist. Clubs Council, Committees, etc., that describes the work carried on by these various individuals.
From a geographical standpoint, SCNA is divided into District Clubs comprised by a number of states (or provinces) - See Appendix B of the SCNA C&BL for the current geographical distribution of district clubs and their corresponding jurisdiction. A District Club Rep (and co-rep) heads each one of the district clubs. State Reps. (and co-reps.) are the link between members and their District Club - they meet with their Dist. Club Rep. and communicate information back and forth.
All of the District Club Reps. meet as a Serama Governing Council that is managed through a District Clubs Chair, Vice-Chair, Recording Secretary, and Treasurer - the Youth Director and Youth Liaison (created to encourage youngsters in this healthy hobby and activity from a young age) -- and concentrates on the exhibition, showing events, meets, etc., and the coordination of the judging and licensing required for these opportunities to come together as a Serama poultry community.
See Appendix C - List of Officers, Standing Committees, and Other Positions as well as the SCNA Organizational Chart for reference.
