ANA Membership and Participation

  1. Karen:

    Thanks to this BB for awakening the politcal side of me. My question... I contacted to National ANA..... decided to join... felt I hsould talk with my local ANA (Wyoming).. it has been two weeks since they said they would get me information.... I call... leave messages... written email with a brief response that I would get info... nothing yet...

    Should I recontact the National ANA? Do you basically get the same info anyway? I realize you joing by state afiliation... I was hoping to get more info by contacting my state organization... It sounds like they are too busy or have stuff going on....

    Feeling antsy and want to soak up information... I feel rather starved (input wise) about what is going on locally.

    On another subject... thank you for your input, articles, and comments on the BB. I read them with great interest....

    Some associations move slower tham others. Your state only has 1/2 day staffing. Maybe delayed due to holiday? Follow up per JT's post. If no reponse by Monday, contact ANA directly. They respond most emails within 24-48 hrs. Sorry about the delay in your states info. Things are certainly different with the mail since 9-11. Karen
