Call for Nominations for Open MCNP Officer Positions

Posted on 3/18/2021

Dear Colleague,

It is an exciting time for the MCNP as we continue to celebrate the passage of Full Practice Authority for Nurse Practitioners in Massachusetts.

I am in the last months of my second and final term as your MCNP President.  It has been a great honor and the highlight of my career to serve in this role.  I am forever grateful to our volunteer NPs at the MCNP who have dedicated time and talent to move our agenda forward.  I am equally inspired by you, one of the NPs in MA who provided tender, innovative, and exceptional care throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Today we announce our upcoming annual officer elections, and I urge you to answer this call to service.  Maybe you are interested in an NP leadership position or maybe you want to join one of our committees?  We are looking for thoughtful and curious NPs from diverse backgrounds, with any level of experience, to engage with us as we forge ahead towards advancing our profession. 

The personal and professional rewards of this type of service are countless.  In addition to the networking, mentoring, and leadership opportunities, you will help influence the future roles of MA NPs in our ever-changing health care landscape. 

Details about the officer positions on the 2021 ballot are listed below, and I encourage you to answer the call to serve for what I know will be a rich and rewarding experience.

Best Regards,

Chris Malagrida, NP
MCNP President
