Katherine Tyler Scott, in Creating Caring & Capable Boards

Serving as a volunteer member of the Colorado Nurses Association Board of Directors is an important and time-consuming effort of the individuals who choose to run for these membership representative positions.  

Elections are held annually for a two-year term and rotate in such a manner that one-half of the Board of Directors rotate off every year, unless one chooses to run for two consecutive terms.  The President is a three-year term, the first year serving as a President-Elect to support leadership succession of the Association.  

Please review the CNA bylaws for more specific information.

Your volunteer role as a member of the CNA Board has three primary aspects: fiduciary, commitment to service, and supportive of CNA Mission and Strategic Plan. 

 Your fiduciary obligation is to balance the financial sustainability of the association and maximize member services.  Your commitment to service recognizes that we are a member driven association dependent on volunteer leadership and involvement. Your supportive role is to help make CNA work for our members and to assist in achieving our mission and strategic plan.

Key personal attributes found to contribute to inclusive teams and learning cultures that foster innovation include curiosity for self and others, engagement of self and others, and, determination that combines tenacity and ability to be change when necessary.  If you are looking for personal challenge and professional commitment to advance nursing in Colorado, please consider these opportunities.
