SNMA Region VIII
REGIONAL LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE (RLI) PROGRAM
" The Evolving Partnership Shapes The Progressive Leader"
October 5, 2019
Hosted by Lewis Katz School Of Medicine - Temple Medicine
The Student National Medical Association (SNMA) Region VIII 2019 Regional Leadership Institute (RLI) is being held at Lewis Katz School of Medicine (Temple), in Philadelphia, PA.
The RLI was established within SNMA to enhance the leadership skills of the current chapter and SNMA officers within the region, although attendance is open to all students. This year’s RLI workshops are designed to focus on effective leadership development and preservation, for future leadership, along with exercising team-building and communication skills. This RLI will conclude with a Region VIII Meeting, where we will discuss the pertinent officer expectations, and Regional programming updates. RLI is a sanctioned event for chapter leaders, however, All students are welcome to attend RLI.
If you hold a chapter leader position, please note:
While RLI is mandatory for ALL chapter leaders and ALL chapter leaders should be in attendance, each SNMA/MAPS chapter should have representation for the following positions: Chapter President, Vice President, Treasurer, MAPS Liaison (only SNMA chapters) and Parliamentarian. (The following positions are highly encouraged secretary, fundraising chairs and community service chairs). If a chapter has less than 3 delegates present, the chapter will accrue a fine for the SNMA 2019-2020 fiscal year. [$100/SNMA chapter $50/MAPS]
