|POSITION STATEMENT |
What leadership attribute is essential to enhance the image and effectiveness of ENA?
As leaders, we all have strengths that contribute to the effectiveness of ENA. My strengths lie in my ability to be open-minded and respectful of others when considering differing points of view and asking questions to make informed decisions for the betterment of ENA. I am comfortable with change and try to be proactive in looking at innovations that will enhance the services ENA provides to its members. I respect the decisions of the majority but I also want to make sure that the voice of the minority is heard. As your next president, informed decision-making is what I bring to the table. I ask for your vote.

|STATEMENT TO THE MEMBERSHIP |
My name is Michael Moon. I have been an ENA member for 23 years. During my tenure in ENA, I have served in various leadership roles at the local, state, and national levels. Serving in these leadership roles has been a privilege but at the same time has helped in my professional development. I now feel that I’m qualified to serve as president of ENA.
Leadership is not about position but rather about service to others. I believe it’s essential that the ENA president has the ability to constantly strive to learn and grow as a leader. Each of us brings something unique to the table and learning is life long. My strengths lie in my ability to be open-minded and respectful of others when considering differing points of view. Asking questions is essential to make informed decisions for the betterment of ENA. I am comfortable with change and try to be proactive in looking at innovations that will enhance the services ENA provides to its members. I respect the decisions of the majority but I also want to make sure that the voice of the minority is heard.
Furthermore, effective leadership requires vision and the ability to collaborate with others. We have to collaborate with each other and our international colleagues to identify and address those issues impacting patient care and our practice. My vision for ENA is two-fold. First, I want ENA to continue to expand providing evidenced-based resources to emergency nurses through the use of real time technology to improve patient care. Having access to these resources empowers our members to care for their patients more efficiently. Second, I want ENA to actively engage emerging emergency nursing professionals to help them in their professional development as future leaders. We need to mentor our new colleagues to ensure their success in the specialty. Together we can develop and share innovative solutions that make a difference. I ask for your vote to be your next president.
