2023 was NYSNA’s most successful year to-date. This year, our members kept up the momentum, proving that when we lead from the frontlines, we are unstoppable. We built upon prior contract and policy victories and won in every part of the state. Uniting with our union siblings around the country, we are confronting some of the healthcare industry’s largest issues and building nurse power for our patients, profession and future.

Join us for two days of education, solidarity, advocacy, and fun that will set the direction and priorities of our union.

NYSNA Convention delegates from across the state will come together Oct. 29-30, 2024, at NYSNA’s annual business meeting to examine and meet the challenges facing our profession, our union and our communities. Convention delegates will discuss and debate strategies to build our union’s power and chart our course forward by presenting resolutions during voting body sessions. 

Our union’s strength depends upon members being engaged in driving our priorities and strategies. These Guidelines for Drafting Resolutions are intended to help Convention delegates be successful in the important role they have in leading the way to carry out our mission and vision.
