As an ANT member, you will:

1. Provide input to the CNA Board on issues currently affecting populations and issues within the team area of specialty.

    • The CNA Board will identify a liaison to the ANT.
    • Periodic Reports will be submitted by the ANT to the Board Liaison. The Board may request special reports or specialty advice from the ANT as needed.

    • Request for resources or other needs will be coordinated by the ANT Chair and the ANT Board Liaison in writing.

2. Consult with nurses in specialty areas and other partners when necessary.

3. Carry out activities that promote networking with nurses that have similar interests.

4. Provide input to CNA Committees (Awards Committee, Bylaws and Reference Committee, Finance Committee, Government Affairs and Public Policy Committee (GAPP), Membership Committee, Nominating Committee) regarding ANT issues and concerns. Committees may identify a Communications Liaison, otherwise the ANT Chairperson will communicate with the Committee Chair.
