Dear NAINA Members,

As the Chair of the Communication Committee, I am excited to share with you our plan to reinstate the NAINA Newsletter every four months.  Our Newsletter features news, activities and all things noteworthy which are happening in our chapters and among our members. Our goal is to keep in touch with the membership and celebrate their success. I am aware of great things that go on in many Chapters and on behalf of the Governing Board, we look forward to highlighting your work and providing a platform upon which to share your talents and success. To that end, I invite you to collaborate with us on the Newsletter to help create a fun-filled, meaningful and informative bulletin by us, and for us. I have included some helpful guidelines here that will simplify the process of creating our NAINA Newsletter.

Warm regards and thank you,

Suja Thomas, MSN. Ed., RN, CWOCN
