Last fall, WSNA member Justin Gill, MS, ARNP, NP‑C and WSNA Nurse Representative Travis Elmore, BSN, RN-BC, were appointed by the American Nurses Association Board of Directors to the ANA-PAC Board of Trustees.
In this role, Justin and Travis will work in partnership with state associations to determine which federal candidates for office the PAC will endorse and support.
Justin is an urgent care Nurse Practitioner with CHI Franciscan Health and serves on WSNA’s Legislative and Health Policy Council. Travis was a staff nurse and Local Unit co-chair at PeaceHealth Southwest prior to joining WSNA as a Nurse Representative five years ago.
The American Nurses Association Political Action Committee was established to promote the improvement of the healthcare system in the United States by raising funds from ANA members and contributing to support worthy candidates for federal office who have demonstrated their belief in the legislative and regulatory agenda of the American Nurses Association.
Criteria to be considered for the ANA-PAC Board of Trustees include demonstrated involvement in political work; experience with lobbying at the local, state or national level; and a commitment to fundraising for the PAC.
