The initial meeting for the MNA Retiree Group was held at the MNA headquarters in Canton this spring. MNA realizes that retired nurses still have much to contribute to the profession and the association and a retiree group is an excellent way to stay connected and involved.
The mission and goals of the group will be determined by the group’s members in conjunction with the Board of Directors. At the initial meeting the retirees were given examples by the MNA staff directors of areas where they can be of help. One example is the MNA Safe Patient Care ballot initiative now underway.
Other meetings are planned, so if you are retired or soon to be retired and want to join call Eileen Norton at 617.543.4943 or email ENorton@mnarn.org.
