What is the Role of the Council of State Presidents Committee?
The NSNA Council of State Presidents Planning Committee plans and conducts the Council of State Presidents (COSP) meeting at the MidYear Conference and Annual Convention. The members of the planning committee are state presidents elected at COSP. The COSP Committee's responsibility is to discuss the priorities of the association, activities for the year, accomplishments, problems and to share ideas. The committee allows for the interchange and consultation between state presidents, the NSNA Board of Directors, and staff (see NSNA Bylaws).

Sharing of Accomplishments
Please complete the Sharing of Accomplishment Form and share all of the things your state is doing! Also, a State Board of Directors Roster Form must be filled out whenever a new board is elected in to office in addition to adding the newly elected State President to the COSP Facebook Group. These forms are important as they help us to be prepared for our COSP meetings at MidYear!
