Elections are Open
This year we had just enough nominees to fill the slate of openings. Your vote will decide which of our two candidates for president will be president this year (President-highest number of votes) and who will be president next year (President Elect). The two board positions and the secretary position are unopposed.

Three Areas of Focus
1. Community - We seek connections with each other to share and support as we strive to deliver excellent care. Therefore, we will connect and communicate through APNA’s Member Bridge, email lists and planned networking during events.
2. Resource - We seek to continually improve our knowledge base as we endeavor to keep current with evidenced based practice. Therefore, we will offer resources of value to psychiatric nurses of all levels as we organize speaker events, conferences and continuing education opportunities.
3. Advocacy - We seek to advocate for ourselves as psychiatric nurses, for our profession and for those we serve. Therefore, we will collaborate with others in the Mental Health arena to improve services and access to Mental Health care and we will offer a collective Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse voice at the tables where decisions are made concerning Mental Health Services, Psychiatric Nurses and Psychiatric Nursing.
Any APNA member who resides in Kansas is invited to become an active member of the Kansas Chapter. At present, there are no chapter dues. If you are interested in joining or renewing your membership, please see the Membership tab on APNA’s home page for more information about the application process and dues.
After joining, contact the chapter to have your name and address added to our roster/mailing list. Contacting the chapter this way will avoid any delays in your name being added to our roster, so you will not miss out on any of our program notices or other mailings.
