Garry Brydges, PresidentWe are witnessing a lot of activity as candidates share their vision for the future of the AANA. There are some outstanding candidates this year, so please make your vote count. If you have a burning question to ask a candidate, remember that the AANAConnect Candidate Forum is open for you to ask your questions. Voting will end at noon on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. Don’t miss your chance to make a difference, vote today!

How will appointing the FY19 AANA President-elect/President work?

The AANA Board of Directors (BOD) has opted to solicit input from our AANA members through an Advisory Vote. Details about the advisory ballot will be available in the near future. What is important to understand is that the top candidate recommended by the members to serve as the FY19 President-elect/FY20 President is who the AANA BOD will accept to serve in that role.  The advisory ballot is expected to be released in early June 2019.

Deadline for Bylaw Amendments and Resolutions nears 

Another opportunity for members to be heard is through the bylaw amendment or resolution submission process. The deadline for submission of proposed bylaw amendments or resolutions for consideration at the Aug. 10, 2019, AANA Business Meeting is May 10, 2019 (90 days prior to the business meeting). After May 10, the proposed bylaw amendments and resolutions will be published for members to review.
