During SNOMEC's period of operation, Fay, D'Willis, and Phillips were involved equally with managing its activities. Fundraising, preparing questionnaires, assembling and training panels of interviewers, securing interview locations, scheduling sometimes reluctant political candidates, and mailing out the rating sheets, were all time-consuming and required a significant amount of support. These efforts were made possible by the work of a large contact list of enthusiastic volunteers.
Despite having an active volunteer pool, there was a shortage of individuals interested in assuming leadership roles within SNOMEC as its work progressed. There was a desire among the original leadership to hand oversight of the Committee to a new set of organizers. In June of 2003 it had become clear that SNOMEC would not have the level of organizational support needed to complete that year’s ratings sheets, and a letter was sent asking for volunteers to take up the mantle for the 2004 elections. Shortly after, SNOMEC ceased its candidate rating activities. SEAMEC, a Seattle-based Committee from which SNOMEC received guidance and support, is still in operation.
