Candidate Forms Are Due

June 15.

MNA members, be involved in making decisions and directly working towards advancing the goals and mission of MNA as established by the House of Delegates.

Submit your name for one of the many elected offices listed on the Call for Candidates Form. Many different opportunities are available that could reflect your passion – from collective bargaining and organizational governance, to education and practice-specific work or governmental affairs.

Nominations for the offices listed on page 1 of the MNA Call for Candidates Form will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. on June 15, 2013.

You must sign the form and submit via one of the following methods:

  1. Mail or bring to the MNA office 345 Randolph Avenue #200, St. Paul, MN 55102
  2. Fax 651-695-7000
  3. E-Mail Julie.Kinsel@mnnurses.org

The Call for Candidates Form is located on the Member Portal and may be completed on line, but then must be printed out, signed, and returned by one of the above methods.  You can also download all forms and explanations from the Spring 2013 issue of the Minnesota Nursing Accent, here.

In accordance with the MNA Board of Directors policy (also available on the Member Portal), there will be no write-in candidates on the ballot.

If you have any questions regarding the election, please contact either Samantha Riazi or Julie Kinsel.

The election timeline has changed since the last election cycle. Please make note of the dates.
