First Time Attendees and Ambassadors Program

First-Time AANA Annual Congress Attendees
The AANA is pleased to announce its first Nurse Anesthesia Annual Congress Ambassador Program for the 2014 AANA Annual Congress in Orlando, Fla.

Attending the AANA Annual Congress for the first time can be an overwhelming experience. Our goal is to connect every interested first-time attendee, or those who haven’t attended in a while, with a CRNA ambassador who is passionate about the AANA and our meeting and who wants to share their experience.
First Time Meeting Attendee Check List:
  • Visit the Information/Ambassador Desk (Cypress Foyer):
    • Pick-up First-Timer Ribbon
    • Gather tips on networking opportunities to maximize your Annual Congress experience.
    • Attend the First-Timers Orientation on Friday, September 12, 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
  • Throughout the congress, look for “Ask Me!” buttons for answers to any questions.
