About the PNA

Structures of the PNA.

The Branch:

The PNA is based on a strong branch structure. Each branch is responsible for representing it’s members and has significant autonomy in that respect. Each branch has a Branch Secretary, Branch Chairman and Branch Treasurer responsible for the day to day running of each branch in conjunction with the Branch Committee. Branch officers and committee are elected by the branch members annually at the branch A.G.M. The Branch Chairman and Secretary represent the Branch at the National Executive.

Annual Delegate Conference:

The A.D.C. is held annually. Delegations from each branch are entitled to attend based on each branch having two votes regardless of size provided each branch consisting of fifty members shall be entitled to one extra vote in respect of each group of twenty five members in excess of fifty up to two hundred members and one additional vote in respect of each group of fifty members in excess of two hundred members.

All National Officers, Trustees and Representatives on the Officer Board are elected by the delegates at A.D.C.

Each Branch is invited to propose motions to conference for consideration. All amendments to rules resolutions motions and all nominations for National Officers, Trustees or membership of the Officer Board intended for consideration at the Annual Delegate Conference must be received by the General Secretary at the registered office of the association not later than a date appointed each year by the Officer Board.
