ENA State Councils
The state level category of membership exists immediately below the national level and is automatically obtained upon joining the association. ENA state councils are chartered by the national association to implement its philosophy, objectives and leadership and serve as the decision-making bodies at the state level.
ENA State Council Chapters
The local level category of membership exists immediately below the state level of membership. The local level may consist of formal chapters responsible for implementing national ENA professional activities or informal constituent groups, units or divisions responsible for implementing ENA professional activities as outlined by the state council.
The General Assembly provides direction and stewardship for the organization. It creates professional emergency nursing policy and positions that support the purpose of ENA. General Assembly precedes the ENA Annual Conference. More than 700 delegates represented from state councils and international members gather to witness the installation of board members, hear reports on association activities and debate and vote on proposed bylaws amendments and resolutions.
