Hi fellow ENA members,
Everyone in our ENA community would like to invite you to join our professional organization. We have been campaigning successfully for many years to increase the number of our national as well as our state membership. It has involved a lot of work by our local chapters and state council, as well as individuals to overcome barriers and to develop pride in becoming a valuable member of their own professional organization. As an organization, we have helped to provide courses, free CE’s and have granted scholarship to those who wanted to pursue higher education.
We know that you would be a great addition to our organization, especially with your knowledge about emergency nursing.
State council meetings are held 5x a year and are posted on the website a year in advance to give members plenty of time to plan to come.
We also have our ENA 2020 member challenge ongoing. Visit our ENA website for details https://www.ena.org/membership/recruit-and-share/2020-challenge
Membership Committee Chair Report
California ENA had 4999 members at the middle of May 2023, with 75 new members and 227 expiring members. We are remaining constant in our numbers, but not as strong as last year. We look forward to a more robust year in 2023 as the national conference is in San Diego. Several people asked for permanent name tags and they were requested.
California ENA had 5139 members at the end of October, 2022, with 73 new members and 131 expiring members. We are still 200 members less than earlier this year but numbers continue to rise. Tobin let us know that the decline may be due to the transport nurses no longer getting certification credit from ENA. We look forward to a more robust year in 2023 as the national conference is in San Diego. Several people asked for permanent name tags and they were requested. California members who will be serving on national committees next year will be encouraged to attend at least one state meeting to give us updates.
California has 5325 members in March 2022 with 23 new members. I would like to challenge each chapter to try to get 1% of their members to attend the state meetings, and 2% if you are the host chapter. That means Kern needed 0.9 attendees, Los Angeles 9 and Sacramento 14. I think we were close. If you would like a name badge, please email me with your name, the letters you want after your name and your chapter. I will forward this to David S to make and bring to the next state council meeting members per council–East Bay 450, Greater LA 945, Mid Valley 339, Orange Coast 438, San Diego 576, San Francisco 454, Loma Prieta 379, Sacramento 714, Inland Empire 596, Channel Islands 189, Superior 129 and Kern 93.
4685 total CalENA members, including 17 NCE members. ENA National Component relations notified every month to assign new members not assigned to a specific chapter. 26 new members joined for the month.
