Leadership Development

Conference Calls
Conference calls are held in January, May, and September in advance of APNA Board of Directors meetings.  Information will be sent in an e-mail message or be posted to the Chapter Board_Pres&Elect community on Member Bridge. These calls are primarily for chapter leaders, but any board member is welcome to participate.  These calls are a great opportunity to get updates on APNA activities and to present any issues you face in your state for discussion.

Meeting at the APNA Annual Conference
APNA hosts Chapter Leaders at a meeting during the APNA Annual Conference.  Leadership orientation, APNA activity updates, and presentations by invited speakers have been included in past meetings.

Online Networking
A community on Member Bridge has been created for chapter leaders.  Connect with others to share ideas or gain some insight into your role as an officer.
