About Our Region

SNMA is made up of 10 regions around the country. An elected Regional Director oversees each region. Regional Boards are mainly comprised of the following elected regional officers: Regional Director, Assistant Regional Director, Pre-medical Liaison, Secretary, Treasurer, and Committee Chairs (corresponding to national committees). Each region hosts an annual Regional Conference at which a regional meeting is held. Each region has its own Constitution and Bylaws, which must be held in accordance with and not in violation of the Constitution and Bylaws of National SNMA. Region IX is comprised of chapters from New Jersey, and New York.

Region IX got that swagggggg! Our region is comprised of 27 chapters spanning the coasts of New Jersey and New York. We are fun, eclectic, goal oriented and dynamic. Community outreach by getting involved with the area that cultivates you is a very important message to us. We try our best to embody this within our chapters and as a region. We also think leadership, representation, “each one teach one” and building our future generations is relevant work. You can catch us embracing service, scholastic excellence and mentorship while swag surfing on an AMEC stage near you! Please check out or Instagram for event flyers, updates and to stay in the loop on what’s going on with us @snma_region_9. We hope to see you at our next event and remember to stay involved and stay swaggin!
