Ep 176: Meet 13 Candidates in the 2022 AANA Elections

The AANA Elections to appoint the 2022-2023 board and elected committees will open on April 19 and members will have two weeks to cast their votes. We had the opportunity to go to the mid-year assembly in Washington D.C earlier this month and give candidates the chance to speak directly to you about their views and goals to help you make a more informed decision. Today you’ll hear from 13 CRNAs who will be on the ballot this month.

On This Episode:

We were excited to make the trip back up to Washington D.C. earlier this month for the AANA Mid-Year Assembly. It was great to be back in person and see so many wonderful people. 

While we were there, we wanted to use that time to put together a show dedicated exclusively to introducing you to as many of the candidates running for the AANA 2022 Elections as possible. We’ve done this in the past and got great feedback on the format so it’s something we wanted to get done once again.

Over the course of a half-hour, you’ll get to hear from 13 different candidates: two candidates for president-elect, three for vice president, one for treasurer, and seven candidates for directors. They’ll share their views on the profession and the goals they have for their position. Remember that voting will open on April 19 and members will have until 12 PM/CT on Tuesday, May 3 to cast their ballot.

I started listening to this podcast religiously early on in my CRNA journey, a year before applying to CRNA school. The content in this podcast was one of my most helpful resources for getting into my first choice school, Wake Forest! It has also been a huge motivator for getting involved with the AANA now and throughout my career. I highly recommend this podcast to every prospective CRNA I meet.
