We tried to keep this increase as minimal as possible; hence the increase is just €2 per year.
Members will also have the option to pay a 10 year or a lifetime MAPN membership.
The revised fees as agreed by the MAPN council are the following: Those members who will opt to pay their membership via the direct payment from MCH wage will no longer have €1 (one euro) deducted from their wage throughout the year, instead €7.50 (seven euro fifty) every 6 months will be deducted.
Members who have this option already in place will be asked to sign a declaration saying that they agree with this slight increase in annual fee and subsequently the salaries section will be notified.
Delegates attending single days will receive units according to the number of hours they attend – one input hour usually equates to one unit.
As you might know the Maltese Association of Psychiatric Nurses (MAPN) is 10 years old!
Throughout the years the MAPN has established itself as one of the main stakeholders in local Mental Health; at European level, the MAPN is co-founder of the European Psychiatric Nurses Association (HORATIO) and has been recognized as an important contributor in the movement for improved recognition for Psychiatric Mental Health Nurses. This minor increase should reflect and contribute towards the increased expenses that our growing association is facing.
In the coming weeks MAPN council members will be starting an exercise to collect signatures and members will also be asked to review their contact details in order to have an improved members’ database.By becoming a member you will be helping the association to keep with the growing momentum and ascertain us as the voice for Maltese Psychiatric & Mental Health Nurses.
