Request for Bylaw Amendments and Reference Proposals


The CNA Membership Assembly will be held on Saturday, September 21, 2019. Bylaws Amendment Proposals must be in the hands of the Secretary two months prior to the meeting.

Please send your suggestions for amendments to me by July 21, 2019.  Do not worry about wording–just let me know what it is you would like to propose, and I will put it into appropriate bylaws language and format.

Reference Proposals

Reference Proposals are also welcomed for discussion at the Membership Assembly. These proposals can be on any topic of concern to nurses that you seek CNA endorsement of. They should be submitted by August 31, 2019.

Here is the suggested format for a reference proposal:
