The SNA of Ohio website and Newsette Newsletter are two methods that the association communicates with its membership. The Newsette is published three times per year. Issues include articles from the President, updates on the various chapters and regions, photos from happenings around the state, registrations and surveys for upcoming events and news from the office.
