Member Background

The members of the Nursing Oranizations Alliance (NOA) are professional associations. As with most professional associations, NOA member organizations are typically led by a leadership team. This leadership team typically includes one or more volunteers elected by members of their association to leadership roles (President, President-Elect, members of a Board of Directors, etc.), and a paid staff leader (Executive Director, Chief Executive Officer, etc.). The elected volunteer leaders typically serve terms of one or perhaps two years, while the staff leader serves on an ongoing basis at the pleasure of the elected leadership. Together, the chief elected volunteer leader (and in some organizations the volunteer leader’s elected successor-in-waiting) and the chief staff leader constitute the "leadership partnership" of the organization. The elected leaders are members of the association, most often engaged in the full-time practice of their nursing specialty.
