Information & Reports
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
We know that you will enjoy being a member as much as we do. Email me if you have any questions.
Membership Committee Chair Report
As of March 3,2019, There are 4,480 CalENA members, 17 of which are on the NCE list. Email has been sent to the National Membership Component Office to assign them to their respective chapters. I also emailed the chapter presidents to reach out to their new members and will continue to do this on a monthly basis. Welcome letters are being sent to new members monthly. Current numbers for each chapter East Bay- 386 including 1 new member Greater LA- 779 including 2 new members Mid-Valley- 293 including 1 new member Orange Coast- 405 San Diego- 489 San Francisco- 411 with 1 new member Loma Prieta- 274 Sacramento- 593 Inland Empire- 456 Channel Islands- 174 Superior- 134 Kern- 69 including 1 new member Have also been contacting Membership Component relations regarding brochures and swags for new member welcome gifts. I was told that currently, there’s nothing we can gift for free but members are encouraged to go to the marketplace so they can avail a 20% discount on merchandise. Email received below from National: Hello Agnes, Thank you for your inquiry. We have checked, but we currently do not have any free ENA swag to distribute to new members. We have brought this up to our Supervisor to see if it’s something we can offer in the future- thank you for your idea! Please note we currently do have free recruitment materials upon request to assist with your recruitment efforts. You simply need to fill out an online request form. Also, as a reminder, your new members now enjoy all the ENA Member benefits which include 20% off online courses, ENA products, and merchandise found on the ENA Marketplace. Feel free to check it out! As always, please contact us with any additional questions or concerns. Thank you, Liz Aragon Member Services Representative
