The million dollar stake holder question on “ What is in it for me?” is directly related to APPNA’s financial prosperity and it needs to be answered, and the answer lies in these four very important principles:

1- Offering tools, services and products to develop best practices, so they can offer the best care.

2- Open and honest communication and access to information.

3- Leaving no one behind.

25-30% of APPNA’s Physicians are women and they must be included in all Governance strata.

4- Which is the basic principal of all good democratic organizations is the legislation, effective legislation from ground up. Legislation allows introduction of the meaningful proposal and it is this political will that binds our commitment to growth. I will work on these four important principles to help develop APPNA’s financial and Institutional memory so it can create a long lasting financial influence. Thank you for considering me for this position, I am eager to serve the members and contribute to this great organization. I request you all to get involved, volunteer and continue providing your feedback.

I will end with John F. Kennedy’s quote.

“We are not here to curse the darkness, but to light the candle that can guide us thru that darkness to a safe and sane future”.

Yours truly,
