MNA Webmail

The Massachusetts Nurses Association has created a free email service for MNA members. Members can access this account at any time – from any computer – or you can set up your account so that all messages based in your MNA account are automatically forwarded to an existing account (i.e., a Hotmail, Yahoo, Comcast or home-based account).

The service is a new offering created by the MNA to ensure that members, particularly those in bargaining units, have the means to receive and distribute union and professional information in the timeliest manner possible.
