Nurse of the Year Nominations are due August 15, 2018
Wow! What a conference! I had such a great time in Philly and there were SO MANY highlights. Aside from the great educational offerings and the charm of the City of Brotherly love itself, the MAR was in rare form! I’d like to share just a few of my personal faves…
First of all, the MAR booth was phenomenal! We had a lot of foot traffic and interest to be sure. Many booth visitors filled out the Preceptor survey for a chance to win a fantastic gift basket! The Grand Prize, free registration at the MAR conference in Ocean City in September, was won by our own very own Linda Droste from Virginia. Thank you, Cindy Walker (President, Baltimore Affiliate) for your strong booth coordination efforts! Cindy and I will be collating the data and will be sharing our findings with Membership.
Next, what about the Regional breakfast turn out? Seriously, standing room only! And Chris Berke, Director/WOCN National, commented that our gathering room had the most energy (to be sure)! I was excited for those of you who were first time attendees! I hope you enjoyed yourselves and had an opportunity to network with colleagues.
Just a few parting thoughts…Harriet Pilert, your presence and status as ostomy leader is unparalleled…Claudia Thomas, your spritely energy is contagious…Molly Lemanski, I look to you as a quickly blossoming leader…Ferne Elsass, you are a force to be reckoned with…I’ll leave you with perhaps my absolute favorite part of this year’s conference…and a fun time was had by all!
