ANA-NY

Join an ANA-NY Committee!

31 August 2023

One of the best ways ANA-NY members can get involved with the organization is through committee volunteerism. We have several committees so that you can find an opportunity that aligns with your interests and skills.

If you are interested in joining a committee, complete our online interest form linked here.

Sign-up is available through Friday, September 29th.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Audit Committee

Members of the Audit Committee typically meet twice a year prior to the May 15 filing deadline for the 990. The first meeting is to approve the CPA who will be contracted to perform the annual financial review and complete and file the 990 with the IRS. The Executive Director and the bookkeeper provide all of the documents for the financial review and 990. The committee will meet the second time with the CPA and review the findings of the financial review and the 990 before these documents are sent on to the Board of Directors for final approval. Periodically the committee will review relevant policies such as the Whistleblower and Conflict of Interest Policies to assure that they are current and relevant for ANA-NY. Volunteer to be on this committee if you want to serve ANA-NY, but don’t have a lot of time for meetings.

Bylaws Committee

Members of the Bylaws Committee typically meet once or twice a year between March and September. The office team sends out a call for Bylaws Amendments early in the year. Once amendments are received, the committee reviews the submissions for merit, applicability, and substance. The committee has been given approval to make any editorial changes to the Bylaws. Substantive changes are submitted to the Board of Directors for review and then to the Governing Assembly for vote. Volunteer for this committee if you are interested in how associations function and don’t have a lot of time for meetings. 

Finance Committee

The Finance Committee meets several times a year to review the Profit and Loss Statements. Their most important role is to review and endorse the annual budget. The Executive Director compiles the annual budget based on the past several years’ budgets and requests for future spending submitted by the committees and the office team. The Treasurer reviews the proposed budget and then brings it to the committee for review and discussion. The Board of Directors has final approval of the budget. The fiscal year of ANA-NY is the calendar year. Periodically the committee will review relevant policies such as the Reimbursement Policy to assure that they are current and relevant for ANA-NY. Volunteer for this committee if you have a head for numbers and/or want to see where your membership dollars are going.

Legislation Committee

The Legislation Committee meets monthly throughout the year. They advise the Lobbyist on bills at the state level based on the Legislative Priorities adopted annually by the membership at the Governing Assembly. The busiest time for the committee is while our state legislature is in session, January through June. Volunteer for this committee if you are a policy/advocacy junkie or want to become one. 

Awards Committee

The Awards Committee typically meets once or twice a year in the Spring. The office team sends out the call for award nominees for that year’s categories. The committee electronically scores the submissions and then meets to finalize the awardees. Volunteer for this committee if you want a chance to be wowed by the accomplishments of our members.

Nursing Education Committee

Members of the Nursing Education Committee are nurse educators who meet monthly to discuss current trends and issues in nursing education. Periodically the Executive Secretary of the NYSED Board for Nursing, Suzanne Sullivan, joins the committee calls to hear directly from our members. A sub-committee of this committee and the Program Committee review and select content for our Annual Conference. Committee members are also encouraged to submit their own, colleagues’, or students’ work for the CE articles in our quarterly newsletter. Join this committee if you are a nurse educator either in higher education or in clinical settings. 

Program Committee

The Program Committee meets monthly and brainstorms both educational and social events for our members and non-members.
