Committee on Appointments

Annually, the Committee on Appointments (COA), comprised of members of the ANA Board of Directors (Board), is charged with recommending qualified candidates for appointment to ANA's Subsidiary Boards and Committees through its Call for Nominations for Appointed Positions. The ANA Board of Directors considers the recommendations set forth by the COA and makes appointments based on its input. 

Annual Nominations Process

The 2020 Call for Nominations for Appointed Positions is now OPEN.

During the annual Call for Nominations, ANA members (C/SNA-ANA and ANA-Only) may nominate themselves and others for positions designated for registered nurses. Non-members may also be nominated and/or seek appointment to certain positions designated for members of the public.

Complete details about the appointments process, including applicable policies and procedures, are captured in the Guide to the Appointments Process (Guide). Nominators and prospective appointees are encouraged to review the Guide prior to submitting a nomination.
