Announcement of a Transition in ANA\C Leadership

On behalf of the ANA\C Board of Directors, I wish to inform you of the departure of Executive Director Tricia Hunter as of Tuesday June 23, 2015.  During the past few years, the association’s membership has grown significantly and that has created the opportunity to reevaluate how to staff the association to best meet current and future needs of members and other stakeholders.  We thank Ms. Hunter for her service.  

During this transition the ANA\C office address is changing and their might be an interruption in phone service.

For questions about business operations, please contact us at anac@anacalifornia.org or by phone at 844-852-3493.

We will be posting more information and contact information as our moving details are completed.

Executive Advisor
While we determine the best staffing structure for the future growth and needs of the association, the board has appointed Robin Schaeffer, MSN, RN, CNE, CAE, who is ANA’s Western Multi-state Division leader, as the Interim Executive Advisor of ANA\C. 

Additionally, Robin serves as the Executive Director of the Arizona Nurses Association (AzNA). She has been a nurse for over 35 years and has had a varied nursing career that includes staff nursing, teaching and administration. Robin holds a Master of Science Degree in Nursing and two certifications; Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) and Certified Association Executive (CAE).   The ANA\C board looks forward to partnering with Robin during the transition and is committed to remaining the voice of RNs in California.     


As 2015 is a significantly active legislative year for ANA\C, the Board is pleased to announce that Roxanne Gould is assuming the role of full-time lobbyist for ANA\C. Roxanne has been actively engaged with ANA\C’s lobbying efforts over the past several years and is already familiar with the needs and positions of the association.  We are excited to further our relationship with Roxanne, and are confident that her efforts will advance the voice of professional nursing in California. Read more about Ms. Gould.
