POMA News & Updates


As announced on July 27, 2018, AOA has reached an agreement to settle the class action lawsuit filed two years ago. Details of the settlement, which still must be approved by the court, are explained in The DO. On Aug. 9, members received formal notification of the settlement. It defines who is in the class, the terms of the settlement and the rights of class members. There is no need for settlement class members to do anything to approve the settlement; they will receive benefits automatically when the settlement is fully approved by the court. Class members may choose to object to the settlement, but they cannot exclude themselves from the settlement or class. The AOA has produced an FAQ that provides additional information about decoupling and the impact of the settlement on membership, certification and CME. You may share this with your leadership and use it to answer questions from your members.


Oppose CRNP independent licensure, House Bill 100, Senate Bill 25
We ask you to reach out to your legislator when they are in their respective district over the course of the next few weeks. Elected officials are more available and receptive to contact from their constituents in the districts. Express your opposition (in person is best or by telephone, AND in writing) on this issue relative to CRNP Legislation (HB 100, SB 25). POMA has emailed and sent a hard copy of our opposition letter to all House members in advance of your contact. Your one-on-one interaction is our most effective tool to influence this issue.
