Board of Directors Update

This past 7 months have been incredibly challenging for NYSENA. We had an in-person meeting in January, then COVID hit and our Setting the Pace in April was canceled. We had a our first totally virtual State Council meeting in April!.It was well attended by our council members and we were able to discuss our agenda together.

One of the items we discussed was the need to make changes to our bylaws in order to be in compliance with National ENA. In June we took the first step in that direction, we had a special virtual meeting of our NYSENA Council to vote on the By-Law changes. The changes were unanimously approved and the new bylaws were accepted. Next we must now work on the revision of our policies to be compliant with National. They will be sent out to the council members and discussed at the August Council Meeting. These changes in our bylaws and policies are mandatory for NYSENA to remain compliant under National ENA. They will be bringing some significant changes to the NYSENA and, consequently, our chapters. We will work to communicate these changes to you all and to make these transitions as painless as possible.

The August 8th Council meeting will be virtual via Zoom, with part of this meeting being devoted to Delegate orientation. We have 35 delegates and 1 alternate attending the EN2020X General Assembly. There will be one bylaw Amendment and 7 Resolutions being presented.

General Assembly will take place on September 8th 8:00 A.M. - 4:30 P.M. Central Time this will be a totally virtual event, watch for more details to come.

Our Setting the Pace 2021 will take place in Saratoga Springs on April 22nd and 23rd, 2021. We will also be having our 50th Anniversary Gala on April 22nd and there will be a lot to celebrate.
