KNA & ANA to Launch A Special Pilot Project In 2013
We are pleased to share with you some exciting news about an innovative pilot project between Kentucky Nurses Association (KNA) and ANA. KNA contacted ANA several weeks ago with a request to develop a pilot project that tests the concepts advanced by ANA at the 2012 House of Delegates, i.e., the establishment of a single, joint membership at a reduced dues level, with maintenance of a “legacy membership” at the current, higher dues level. The respective boards approved the approach; KNA members affirmed this direction at their October 26 membership meeting; and a Membership Pilot Project and Services Agreement has been reached.more news
