Regional Chapter Representatives Are Vital Communication Leaders


The Chapter Advisory Team provides an important link between chapters and the national office, ensuring effective communication among the AACN Board of Directors, national office and local chapters on pressing issues chapters face. Advisers are volunteers who have expert knowledge about chapter issues and trends in their region as well as information about developments at the national level and how those developments affect chapters. Following are the Chapter Advisory Team representatives for 2007-08.
