ANA Call for Proposals for the 2022 Membership Assembly

Posted about 1 month ago in ANA Announcement

Dear ANA Member:

On behalf of ANA's Professional Policy Committee, I encourage you to engage in the identification of strategic policy topics and the submission of proposals for discussion by ANA's governing body, the Membership Assembly, at the 2022 annual meeting in June. Your involvement in ANA's policy work is critical!

Of particular interest to ANA for this Call for Proposals are proposals specific to addressing issues related to nurse staffing, with particular focus on the acute care setting, and strategies to reduce workplace violence against nurses and other health care employees. All proposals submitted should be solution oriented.

Section 1 of the 2022 Membership Assembly Policy Development Guide includes questions for you to consider prior to submitting a proposal. In Appendix A of the Guide, you'll find the ANA Enterprise 2020-2023 Strategic Goals. The Guide also contains detailed information on the submission and review of proposals, including emergent proposals; Dialogue Forums; and examples of approaches used by state nurses' associations that have successfully engaged members in ANA's policy work.

Completed proposals MUST BE submitted (by using the online proposal forms) by 5:00pm ET on Monday, February 7, 2022. Refer to Appendix D in the Guide for key dates and direct questions to Cheryl Peterson, Vice President, Nursing Programs, via email (practice@...).

Sincerely,

Cheryl Peterson, MSN, RN
