The Massachusetts Nurses Association is a democratic, member driven organization whose leadership is elected by the membership by election ballot. This leadership offers diverse opinions and strategies about how to protect and advance nursing's agenda. Through the work of the Association and its initiatives, MNA's elected officers gather the opinions of the membership and create the strategies that steer the organization. As a active member of the MNA you can add your input to that debate—if not in person then by voting for your nurse colleagues who you have chosen to bring their voice to the decision making forums at MNA.
Nominations are gathered from January to March. Elections are held in the late summer, and the winning candidates are announced at the MNA's annual convention each fall. Vacancies throughout the year are filled by MNA Board of Director appointments. A listing of available positions is provided below along with pertinent information for all candidates regarding policies and procedures.
