Presidents

Boards of Directors

The Board of Directors was called the Board of Trustees until fiscal year 1976.

The AANA fiscal year runs from September 1 to August 31 and is named for the calendar year in which it ends, e.g., fiscal year 1972 runs from September 1, 1971 to August 31, 1972.
 
The CRNA credential was adopted at the 1956 Business Meeting; therefore, starting with the fiscal year 1957, CRNA will appear after names. Credentials in addition to CRNA were not listed in AANA publications until fiscal year 1981. Credentials listed are those held when Board members took office.
