  • 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. Please use email to the various officers and staff to communicate during this transition. Please see the website for details of email addresses and updated phone information.

    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.     

    For questions about business operations, please contact: Dr. Dianne Moore President of ANA\C via email at president@anacalifornia.org. You may also contact us at anac@anacalifornia.org or by phone at 844-852-3493.

    Please be patient during this transition. We will be posting more information and contact information as our moving details are completed.

    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. For questions about ANA\C’s advocacy efforts or policies, please contact:  Dr. Liz Dietz the Director of Legislative Affairs at her email: legislation@anacalifornia.org

    Bio:  Roxanne Gould has been advocating on behalf of business interests in California since 1987.  She has built an extensive resume with a particular focus on technology, financial, consumer affairs, health care and privacy issues culminating into the establishment of Roxanne Gould Government Relations in 2013.

    Her civic involvement has included participating on the boards of the San Francisco League of Women Voters, Institute of Government Advocates, People Reaching Out, in addition to acting as Chair of Capitol Network and serving as President for the Sacramento YWCA, and most recently has joined the Board of the American Red Cross, Northern Chapter.

    As the Vice President of Government Affairs for Bank of America, Ms. Gould led efforts to defeat legislation that would cap interest rates and other measures that would have established burdensome regulations on the industry.  In so doing, she was instrumental in developing a proactive legislative agenda that sought to streamline the lending process.  Ms. Gould also served as Senior Vice President at the California Bankers Association.

    For the past 12 years Ms. Gould has been - and continues to be - one of the lead advocates for the technology sector.  As the Senior Vice President of TechAmerica (the leading U.S. technology association), Ms. Gould was at the forefront of educating government regulators and the legislature regarding the numerous benefits the technology community has to offer - stalling legislative efforts that would have impeded those benefits.

    While at TechAmerica and most recently Dell Inc., she effectively defeated multiple pieces of legislation that sought to impose cumbersome mandates on the business community at large.  Ms. Gould has previously lobbied for the California Chamber of Commerce and the California Building Industry Association.

    Roxanne Gould has established herself as a well-respected and effective advocate with strong relationships in all levels of California Government and is committed to giving back to her community.  She has provided advocacy support for ANA/C for the past two years and is honored to have the opportunity to play a more active role in advancing ANA/C's legislative agenda.

    Roxanne Gould can be reached at Roxanne@gouldgr.com or 1-916-715-0900

    We sincerely thank all our members for their support of their professional nursing organization both nationally, ANA, and locally in California i.e. ANA\C, the American Nurses Association/California.

    More news to come….

    Thank you

    Dianne S Moore
    President ANA\C
