The Delaware Nurses Association Nominating Committee is an independent Committee tasked with preparing a slate of qualified Board of Directors candidates for membership consideration. Nominating Committee members act only in the interest of the DNA membership and within the scope of the DNA mission and responsibilities assigned to it by the DNA Bylaws.
It is the responsibility of the Nominating Committee to recognize and seek qualified nominees for the elected leadership of DNA. The members of the Committee, therefore, have tremendous influence on the future of the Delaware Nurses Association and should themselves be carefully elected. The Nominating Committee members need a knowledge and experience of the concerns and interests of the DNA membership and are accountable for adherence to the Bylaws and for compliance with the rules and procedures established by these policies.
It is the mission of the Delaware Nurses Association Nominating Committee to nominate qualified candidates for the Board of Directors and Board officer positions.
• Increase the number of qualified applicants for positions on the DNA Board of Directors and Nominating Committee.
• Increase DNA membership awareness of and participation in the elections process.
• Maintain a positive and transparent atmosphere prior to, during, and after the elections process for all applicants and candidates.
Members of the Communication Committee are elected annually. Participating on this committee can be a very rewarding experience-work with other nurses from around the state and expand your networking base. You must be a DNA member to participate.
