2016 has arrived and is moving by very quickly! We now have a beautiful new logo which complies with the Branding Standards of the WOCN® Society. Thank you to Kevin Selekof, son of Joan Selekof, CWOCN, for his graphic design talents which assisted us with this process!
In January we said goodbye to outgoing board members Sue Currence (Member at Large Marketing and Development) as well as Dot Goodman and Ann Williams (Co- Conference Chairs). We welcome LuAnn Rau and Linda Arundel as our new conference co-chairs. Claudia Thomas has joined us in the role of Member at Large Marketing and Development. Jeanne Arseneau is serving an additional term as treasurer. Many thanks to the outgoing members. Thank you so much for your hard work. Welcome to our new board members! We look forward to a great year!
The 2016 Fall conference will be held October 28-29, 2016 in Richmond, Virginia. It promises to be another wonderful event full of great educational opportunities. Please save the date and check back frequently on the website for additional information coming soon!
WOC Week is fast approaching! This year the theme is WOC Nurses Hold ALL the Cards! I could not agree more with this! WOC nurses use expert clinical skills, facilitate cost containment, drive revenue and ensure regulatory compliance, in addition to improving patient care through advocacy, patient/family education, research and the achievement of positive clinical outcomes (WOCN Society, 2010). I want to take this opportunity to wish all of you a wonderful WOC Nurse’s Week and thank you so very much for the incredible contribution that you make to your patients, your place of work, your colleagues and your communities. Thank you so very much for your love and hard work.
Interested in becoming more involved in Regional activities? If you are interested to serve on the Board in the future, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me, Sue Currence, Nominations Chair or anyone on the Board. The positions of President Elect, secretary and Member at Large for Communications will be on the ballot this year.
Happy Spring all!
