CMSA Public Policy Liaison Network Webinar

CMSA and NNNO gather in the halls of the House Congressional Offices

Thank you to the Case Management Society of America (CMSA) for their continued support for The National Nurse Act (H.R. 379) and (S. 1205). Recently the CMSA Public Policy Committee invited NNNO President Teri Mills to provide a short presentation to explain this legislation via a national network webinar. Over 100 members from every region of the country participated. Helpful information was provided that included how to be an effective grassroots advocate.

Cosponsoring a bill can be a heavy lift, and it can take months or even years of advocacy for a member of Congress to cosponsor legislation -- that's where constituents come in. Thank you to the many CMSA members who have contacted the NNNO to seek information and offer their help in gaining future support from Congress. Leaders from Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Missouri, New York, and Texas have rallied behind the National Nurse Act and plans are underway to present phone call scripts and template letters in upcoming chapter meetings to engage their own members in this effort. All help is greatly appreciated. “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” Henry Ford
