NYS has many different geographical communities. Each of these communities has unique opportunities, challenges, and needs. ASNY Regional Reps are volunteers in each of the 10 state regions who facilitate active engagement with the practitioners in their area. They also assess, vocalize and bring any local issues to the ASNY Board, allowing ASNY to be responsive to the needs of its members throughout our vast state.
Becoming a regional rep is a great way to build community, help our profession and expand your resume without a huge time commitment. The requirements are to volunteer 6-8 hours a year doing the following:
- Plan a regional annual gathering (picnic, lunch, coffee meetup or virtual event) once a year
- Attend minimum of 4 out of 12 monthly virtual Membership Committee meetings each year
- Share resources with practitioners in your area
- If member needs more help, refer to mentorship program
