The purpose of the Annual Meeting is to allow for you the member, to vote on governance and nursing related policies. The October 27, 2018 WNA Annual Meeting was rescheduled due to low participation.The WNA Board of Directors is aware that it is difficult for the member to participate in a face-to-face Annual Meeting.

Solution for increased member participation
The WNA Board of Directors voted on scheduling a virtual Annual Meeting of the Membership for January 18, 2019. There will be proposed Bylaw changes, three professional policy items and an information report.  Members will need to rsvp in order to join the meeting. This is required for establishing a quorum and verifying that the person participating is a WNA member.
