New York State ID/DD Nurses Association


View our zone map & officers by zone


The association established zones to facilitate and encourage local participation. Each zone determines its own structure based on the needs and interests of members.

Zones elect officers or chairpersons, and appoint representatives to the association's executive board. They conduct meetings and educational programs for professional development and to foster networking among ID/DD nurses.

A percentage of each member's annual dues is returned to zones to help fund activities.
