It's Time to Renew your Boston-NE Chapter Membership!
In order to continue to receive the benefits of membership in the Boston-NE Chapter of the IACRN, please renew your membership! You must renew your membership in order to participate in the upcoming elections.
We've upgraded our website to accommodate online payments. You also have two payment options for membership renewal:
A one-time payment to renew your membership for the 2022-2023 year only (you will receive a notification next year when it is time to renew again)
Automatic payments that will renew your membership each year. Automatic payments may be cancelled by email at anytime.
Those who previously renewed their membership via our website (after September 2021) will receive an email when it is time to renew.

Greetings to the Boston NE Chapter! I hope that you all have had the chance to enjoy some time off to enjoy the summer weather. Now that Fall is just around the corner, the BNE Chapter is looking towards the election of new Board positions. This year, we have several open positions and are currently looking for candidates to join us – we will have two Member at Large positions, the President Elect position and the Treasurer positions to fill. It is a great time to get involved in the Chapter! Your involvement can help towards building your portfolio for Certification, but equally important is the opportunity to continue to build this great community of research nurses in the New England area. If you are interested in learning more about the positions, please contact Emily Clermont at firstname.lastname@example.org or Marisa Albert at email@example.com to learn more.
It is also the time of year to renew your Membership. Starting last Fall, members were able to join directly through our website. There were a number of you who renewed or joined at that time, but several of you who had not yet had the opportunity to do so – you had renewed through our old PayPal account. For those of you who did join through the website, you should receive an automatic message to renew your membership at the time when your membership expires. For those of you who did not, you should have received an email inviting you to do so. Please reach out to us if you encounter any issues with this transition, if you have not received an email, or if you have any questions about the process.
As many of you know, the 14th Annual IACRN Conference in Atlanta, “Advancement in Clinical Research Nursing: Building Practice Excellence”, is fast approaching. The Conference will run from October 17th – 19th and is a great opportunity to hear from our colleagues around the country and world about their practice as Clinical Research Nurses. For further details, check out the IACRN website: https://iacrn.org/page-1863074 . If you aren’t able to attend, we plan to have colleagues from our Chapter share their talks with us at the November Chapter meeting which is scheduled for November 3rd at 5:00 PM. We will share the election results at this time as well.
As always, we would love to hear from you regarding ways that we can continue to grow this Chapter and are always happy to welcome your involvement. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
