In 2006 bylaws for the organization were drafted and voted into effect. At that time the bylaws were closely aligned with the Alabama State Nurses Association (ASNA) as many members of CANPA were also members of the Advanced Practice Council through ASNA. Today, many members of CANPA remain affiliated with both organizations however, a decision was made to revise the bylaws for CANPA with the ASNA language removed. Also, it has become increasingly difficult to provide continuing education credits for the membership and that information in the bylaws was revised. There is a proposed dues increase from $25.00 annually to $50.00 annually.
The original bylaws as well as the proposed revised bylaws are available on the website in the section, "Bylaws and Meeting Minutes". Please take a few moments to review these documents so that this can be voted on during a business meeting. If you have comments, please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
