Dear CMA Presidents and Executive Directors,
As you know, the ANA Board is committed to transparency in all its dealings on behalf of the association's members. To that end, attached are copies of letters ANA has sent to our two major workforce-related Associate Organizational Members (AOMs): United American Nurses (UAN) and the Center for American Nurses (The Center).
These letters make clear that the ANA is poised to explore new and potentially promising business relationships with UAN and The Center. In taking this action, the Board reaffirms its avid support for and belief in ANA's diverse membership having the freedom to choose collective bargaining or other approaches to workforce advocacy.
The ANA Board strongly believes the association and Constituent Member Associations (CMAs) would be better served and strengthened if the relationships between the CMAs and the UAN and the CMAs and the Center were made by the state associations, without unneeded references to Associate Organizational Members in ANA's bylaws The rules and regulations enacted by an association or a corporation to provide a framework for its operation and management.
Bylaws may specify the qualifications, rights, and liabilities of membership, and the powers, duties, and grounds for the dissolution of an , agreements or policies. Further, the ANA Board has trust and confidence in the CMAs being best positioned to evaluate the value of their relationships with the UAN or the Center. Lastly, further potential bylaw changes regarding our structure have been submitted to the Committee on Bylaws by the board with the desired outcome to strengthen the ANA and CMA's. "
The WNA Board of Directors will be monitoring this activity and keep you appraised of any other correspondence we receive. If you have questions regarding this correspondence feel free to contact Gina Dennik-Champion, WNA Executive Director at email@example.com or 608-221-0383.
