SILVER SPRINGS, Maryland – ONA is proud to announce the election of its CEO, Gingy Harshey-Meade, MSN, RN, CAE, NEA-BC, to ANA’s Board of Directors as Treasurer.

Harshey-Meade has served as the ONA CEO for 14 years. One of her biggest accomplishments during that time is positively transforming the association’s financial outlook, making her a perfect fit for the ANA Treasurer seat.

“It was tough when I first arrived at ONA. There were times I was left wondering how we could even make payroll. Through lots of hard work and sacrifices, ONA is now a viable, financially responsible organization. I’ve learned a lot from ONA, which is why I wanted to run for ANA Treasurer,” states Harshey-Meade.

Gingy’s term for Treasurer lasts through the end of 2015. She has previously served at ANA in a variety of capacities, including: secretary of the constituent assembly (2006-2010); member of the Committee on Planning and Budget (2006-2010); member of the Dues Task Force (2006-2010); Ohio delegate (2001-2012); and New Jersey delegate (1999-2006).

Harshey-Meade holds a MSN in Nursing Administration from Setan Hall University, a CPM in Public Administration from Rutgers, The State University of NJ, and her BSN from Seton Hall University. Gingy is also the CEO of the Indiana State Nurses Association, serving in this dual role since January 2013.

The Ohio Nurses Association is a professional membership association and a constituent of the American Nurses Association.
