NPA names Executive Director
I am very pleased to announce that on Monday, April 8th, The NPAs Board of Directors unanimously voted to hire Stephen Ferrara, DNP, FNP-BC to serve as the Associations' Executive Director. As you may know, he was serving in the interim capacity since October 2012. Under his leadership, membership has already increased 7% to an all time high of 3380, and there have been increased communications throughout the Association.
The Executive Director Search Committee received many qualified applicants and after an intense review and interview process, put forth Stephen as the candidate to the Board of Directors. Jeanne Martin, ANP, President of The NPA stated, "we thank all of the candidates who applied. After meeting with Stephen and reviewing his credentials, we believe that his unique experience, education, and skills will allow our Association to continue growing while meeting it's mission and values."
Stephen will maintain his clinical practice and residence in White Plains, New York and travel regularly to the Clifton Park NPA offices. Stephen is married to Melissa Ferrara, FNP, and they have three children; Anna Rose, 8, Joseph, 6, and Lia, 3.
