New Membership Registration and Renewal Process
At our recent annual membership meeting in Latham, our members voted to unify with the National Association of School Nurses. We feel this decision will be a pathway to increasing our membership along with givingNew York State school nurses a voice on the national level. The larger our membership numbers, the louder, stronger and more powerful voice we have.
I am sure many of you have questions about membership renewal. The current membership list will be shared with NASN on December 15, 2019. The list will be analyzed and the membership data will be segmented into three groups:
Members will retain their membership expiration dates.
• Those with expiration dates within 6 months will be asked to renew at the unified rate.
The categories of membership and annual dues are as follows:
I encourage you to take a few moments to review the benefits of unification so you will be prepared to take full advantage of the opportunities and resources that will be available to you.
I am confident that together we will continue to keep our mission statement in mind and together we will build a stronger organization that will continue to support and meet the needs of school nurses throughout our great state of New York.
