Leadership and Governance

Leadership is a Cornerstone of AMSN and MSNCB

Leadership and governance are what make an association tick. Simply put, leadership + governance = people using their decision-making skills in conjunction with the governing documents that dictate how to run the organization. Governance determines how the association will conduct business and effective leadership is critical to the success of an organization. 

The leadership structure of AMSN and MSNCB includes Boards of Directors and Volunteer Units for each organization.The BOD provides strategic direction, and the Volunteer Units assist with the execution.
