Get Involved

Being a member of AANAC doesn’t just mean you are ahead of the game with updates and education, it means that you have the opportunity to give back to the long-term care profession. Take your commitment to the next level by volunteering, becoming a mentor or mentee, or sharing your story with others.

Give your time and expertise

Join the AANAC Volunteer Community on AANAConnect. We will post any new volunteer opportunities and invitations in this community group for you to consider and sign up for. Volunteer projects can range from fun marketing projects to service on a formal committee. Other ways in which you can volunteer:

Become a mentor

Give the gift of mentorship to a peer that may be new to the field or looking for professional growth opportunities. Your mentee can be right down the street or on the other side of the world, and can easily by found by searching the AANAConnect Member Directory. Participate as a mentor or find a mentor for yourself. AANAC has created worksheets and mentoring tips to help get you started.

Welcome new members to AANAC

It’s hard to be the newbie in a close-knit group of peers, so take a moment to say hello to a new member. You can find a listing here and can look them up utilizing the member directory on AANAConnect.

Share your story

Every person has a story and we want to hear yours. How did you get into long-term care? What gives you passion and energy each day? Submit your story and get the chance to be featured on the AANAC blog! Not into writing? Not a problem. We’d be glad to set up an informal interview by phone and put your words into writing and send along a copy for your final review.
