In 2018, we will be electing candidates to the following positions:

The President-Elect is a 3-year position and shall assume the duties of the President in the absence of the President; and shall perform such other duties as may be designated by the President or the Board of Directors. The President shall preside at all meetings of the Board of Directors and of the membership; and shall be an ex-officio member of all committees except the Nominating Committee and the Bylaws Committee; and shall serve as elected ANA delegate.

Approximate Time Commitment:  1 hour/week

Director - 3 positions
– This is a 2-year term; Board members responsibilities include preparation for and attendance at monthly Board of Directors Meetings and all membership meetings; additional special projects and tasks as volunteered or designated by the Board; communicating with membership and colleagues on a regular basis.
Approximate Time Commitment: 1 hour/week

Nominating Committee - 2 positions – This is a 2-year term; committee responsibilities include preparing a slate of candidates for and overseeing all ANA Massachusetts elections in accordance with election policy and procedures established by the Board of Directors.

Membership Assembly Delegate - 1 position - This is a 2-year term; consists of representing ANA Massachusetts at the ANA Membership Assembly Governing Conference in Washington D.C. on June 22-23, 2018.

Some things to keep in mind as you consider running for one of these elected positions:
  1. Board of Directors Meetings are currently held every other month, either as a face-to-face meeting or as a teleconference. Face-to-face meetings are usually held from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

  2. Committee chairs (past and present) are considered by most of the membership as having the requisite experience to run for a Board Member position – it is also a great way to help committee members move into a chair position! Committee members are one of ANA Massachusetts most valuable resources.

  3. Committee members come with enormous amounts of vital experiences and background – committee members (past and present) are cordially invited to run for a Board Member position.
  4. At ANA Massachusetts, we believe every nurse is a leader! Further, we believe every nurse is entitled to mentoring, coaching and support in achieving their professional goals. It is because of this belief that we invite all members to consider running for one of these elected positions.
Please consider if in fact This is Your Time.
* Please Note: No person serving as an officer or director of another organization where such service might result in a conflict of interest shall be included on the slate for an elected position in ANA Massachusetts.

Candidates are urged to contact Nominating Committee Chair, Cathleen Colleran at  with questions.
Remember, you are ANA Massachusetts and This is YOUR Time!
