Thank you for being a part of the Arkansas Nurse Practitioner Association (ANPA). Due to continued concerns regarding COVID-19 and large gatherings, our board decided to cancel our Annual conference scheduled for August 21st and 22nd. Our conference and education committees are finalizing details for a virtual conference to offer CEs and support our annual membership meeting. We will send this information when we have further details.
Our 2021 legislative agenda includes running a Full Practice Authority bill, supporting a Medicaid PCP bill, and other Nurse Practitioner issues that may arise (such as opposing bills that adversely effect NP practice). ANPA legislative committee is working with a Legislator to run the Full Practice Authority Bill. We plan to hire our first ANPA Lobbyist. Unfortunately, the decision to cancel our Annual Conference has an enormous impact on our ability to pay a lobbyist for our 2021 legislative agenda. Since we are a 501(c)3 tax exempt association, we can use 20% of our gross revenue for lobbying. The Annual Conference (although expensive for ANPA) is our largest source of revenue.
We are asking, if you are able, to donate your full or partial conference registration fee to help support ANPA's 2021 Legislative Agenda/Lobbyist. We understand many of our members are financially effected by the virus and cannot make this contribution. Be assured your full registration will be returned if you choose not to donate it. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
Email email@example.com to donate your registration and firstname.lastname@example.org for a refund.
