How Do I Communicate with APNA?

The chapter leader should email chaptersupport@apna.org.
This includes requests for the services provided to chapters that are outlined on this page.
You will be assigned a point of contact, however, please note that there is a team of people available to provide support during regular business hours.

How Do I Schedule Chapter Conference Calls?

  • The time and date are sent to chaptersupport@apna.org and APNA will set up conference calls for Chapter leadership.
  • An Outlook appointment is sent to participants with a toll-free number to call and instructions on how to connect to the conferencing service.
  • Agendas can be sent to participants if provided by the Chapter leadership.
  • A reminder is sent the day before the call.
  • Upon the Chapter’s request, APNA will poll Chapter leaders for availability using the Chapter’s designated contact person’s available times.
  • Zoom is an option for conference calls.
  • Templates for an agenda and preferred format for minutes for board meetings can be found here.

How Do I Send an E-mail to the Chapter?

  • APNA will send out emails on behalf of the Chapter to the Chapter’s members in the  manner set forth herein.
  • The Chapter must send the message text/document (including a contact name and phone number) to chaptersupport@apna.org.
  • Include the sender’s name, email address, and phone number in the message text. Messages going to all the members in a chapter need to come from the chapter President.
  • Non-member contacts can be included in your message if requested.
  • APNA requests a window of 2 – 3 days for the email to be sent, but if workload allows, it will be sent as soon as possible.
  • APNA will format the message and proof before sending out.
  • If an attachment is included it is uploaded to the APNA website after being proofed for formatting and correctness. If appropriate, if an email is provided for the purpose of promoting a Chapter event, the entry may be posted on the Chapter pages for the event.
  • If you wish to send to areas outside the chapter you must first obtain approval from that area’s Chapter President before sending information to their members.
  • Sending an email to a region within in the chapter:
    • Records for the applicable region must be coded in our database in order for an email to be sent to that group of people. If the representative reviews a roster and indicates the areas in their region we can code the records.
    • A regional representative may request an email to be sent. However, requests should be submitted as directed above to chaptersupport@apna.org with a carbon copy (cc) sent to the Chapter President.
    • A message is assumed to be approved unless we are notified otherwise by the Chapter President within 24 hours.
    • Requests will only be sent to the members in that region. Emails signed by a regional representative cannot be sent to the entire chapter.
  • Here’s a link to the email request instructions.

How Do I Request a Roster of Chapter Membership?

  • Chapter rosters are provided upon request.
  • Monthly reports are issued for New, Expired, and Reinstated Chapter memberships.
  • Regions can be coded in the APNA database. Chapter representatives can then contact chaptersupport@apna.org to request that e-mails be sent to their area.
  • APNA does not provide a list of email addresses, but will facilitate sending emails to Chapter members.
