CCANN Membership Recruitment and Retention


Since the inauguration of CCANN ten years ago, our association enjoys continuous success in recruitment and retention. CCANN wound like to share exciting highlights of several accomplishments that were achieved in the area of membership.


Since 2008, it has been CCANN’s priority over the past few years to grow our membership. Through the leadership of Kamela Loo, the founder and current president of CCANN, we remained strong and were successful, as our association remained at 130 members as of October 2018. We were honored to be the recipient of many national awards since inauguration, including our highest award of “ Chapter of the Year” in 2015.


While building our membership, CCANN has maintained our goals of education, fundraising, donating to community organizations and offering scholarship rewards for professional development.

To become a member of CCANN, one must also be a member of NANN as well. Nurses grow with NANN and CCANN membership. As a member of NANN, one then belongs to the premier professional organization of neonatal nurses.


Many countless opportunities are offered to broaden members including neonatal networking, collaboration and volunteering. Together we can improve patient care and advance the neonatal nursing profession.


The benefits of being a member are as follows:

Opportunity to receive discounts on educational events and conferences, both regional and national, free subscription to NANN nursing journal to keep members in the loop on current neonatal nursing news, free breakfast conferences and earn CEUs, chances to earn Nursing Scholarship rewards for professional development, and participate in the discount promotion. NANN offers group discount rates for new members to make it easier and less expensive.


CCANN has offered $ 750.00 Nursing Scholarship to Ms. Sofia Kemp to study for her NNP degree at UAB at Birmingham. We offered 50% discount to recruit 30 new members in the year of 2018. Also, we have sent members to attend Anaheim NANN national conference in October 2018 - 7 members received $200.00 reimbursement each, 3 members received almost full conference reimbursement, and $ 500.00 of hotel compensation at Anaheim, CA.


CCANN welcomes the New Year to come with new and younger officers who are eager to serve. We would like to extend our invitation to join us, get involved, and be an advocate to connect to the NICU nurses in the Central Valley and experience being a part of this strong, inspirational and compassionate organization.


Together, we can make a difference!
