The ANA Membership Assembly is the governing and official voting body of the American Nurses Association (ANA). It identifies and discusses issues of concern to members and provides direction to the ANA Board of Directors.
One of the key responsibilities of the ANA Membership Assembly is to determine policy and positions for the Association. The meeting of the ANA Membership Assembly provides a forum for discussion of critical nursing practice and policy issues and input from a broad cross section of nursing leaders.

- Two representatives elected from each C/SNA and the IMD; and
- One representative from each of ANA’s Organizational Affiliates; and
