Effective January 1, 2014, ANA will increase the membership dues to the state nurses associations. This increase is in accordance with the dues escalator methodology approved by the ANA House of Delegates. Based on MNA’s Bylaws, MNA’s membership dues will likewise increase by an amount equivalent to the amount of the ANA increase. MNA is acutely aware of its responsibility to manage the resources of MNA. We pledge to continue our tradition of ensuring that funds are used in the most efficient and prudent manner possible.
It is time for you to NOMINATE a healthcare organization or an outstanding nurse who will walk the red carpet for their contributions to the nursing profession.
