This notice constitutes the official call to meeting of the Meeting of the ONA House of Delegates.    The House session will be held Wednesday, October 19, 2016. The House of Delegates will convene at 1:30 p.m. adjourning at 4pm. Credentialing closes at 1:15 pm so that we may start promptly at 1:30 p.m.

Past ONA Presidents

 

The ONA House of Delegates is composed of member nurses duly elected through secret ballot by constituent regional members.  The House of Delegates also provides a courtesy seat to Past ONA Presidents and one registered nurse participant from each organizational affiliate.

Each delegate must study the issues thoroughly and is encouraged to participate in Region sponsored meetings prior to the ONA Annual Convention and the Issues Forum held prior to the House on October 19 so that they may engage in open-minded debate, practice active listening and use the extensive resources and collective knowledge made available throughout these meetings to assist them in making informed decisions.  Prior to the House we will have a session focused on advocacy by Janet Haebler, MSN, RN, Associate Director, ANA State Government Affairs. During the Issue Forum, we will discuss issues related to the work of the association. A registration fee will be assessed for this day, as lunch will also be included. 

Members of the ONA House of Delegates are elected through a regional election process and have a crucial role in providing direction and support for the work of the state organization.  They come to the House to work towards the growth and improvement of ONA and its constituencies.  This requires a professional commitment to the preservation and creative growth of the professional society at all levels of the organization.  Such a commitment will benefit the individual delegate, the Association and the nursing profession.
