State Councils and Local Chapters

ENA State Councils
The State Council is chartered by ENA to implement its philosophy, objectives and leadership. It serves as the decision-making body at the state level. Members become eligible to participate in state activities immediately upon joining ENA.

ENA Local Chapters
The Local Chapter exists immediately below the State Council. It is responsible for implementing ENA professional activities as outline by the State Council.

General Assembly
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.
