May 2017

We are honored to announce that HMA is the latest American Nurses Association (ANA) Organizational Affiliate. This is the designation for specialty nursing organizations that hold an organizational-level membership of ANA.  This will give HMA two seats, with one official representative who has voting privileges, at the ANA House of Delegates. HMA representatives will have the ability to network with the nursing community, ANA and the 37 other Organizational Affiliates representing their specialties. The HMA representatives will attend two half-day meetings per year, be involved in discussions on several programmatic issues and garner in-depth information regarding activities occurring throughout the nursing community.  Conference calls will also occur throughout the year on a variety of practice and policy issues that cut across the specialties. Watch for further information on this new affiliation after our representatives have obtained orientation and attended their first meeting this summer.
