BusinessMembership- National is unable to provide Corporate Membership at this time. We request that Corporate Providers have a National Member represent their agency and then other nurses can attend meetings as they wish. This took effect starting September 2010. ALL renewals now take place online at DDNA.org and the nurse can pay the national and local dues at once. National DDNA will forward the payment to our Chapter quarterly. This is a also a reminder that dues are renewable with your National DDNA Membership renewal. Please complete application forms online at DDNA.org. All new members will get a MN Metro DDNA tote bag.
