May President's Message
As much as I can't believe it, we are rapidly approaching the end of another year of meetings together. We need to start looking forward to next fall, and our officer elections. At the May 2nd meeting, we will be voting for our new officers for the upcoming year. As we discussed at the last meeting, here are the offices to be filled:
- President Elect (1 year PE, 1 year President)
- Vice President (2 year term)
- Treasurer (2 year term)
- Board of Directors (2 year term) 2 to be Elected
- Nominating Committee (2 year term) 2 to be Elected
I can't think of many better ways to support your chapter, AORN nationally, or your profession than becoming an officer in the chapter. Gain leadership skills and an appreciation of what really goes into representing our nursing specialty on a national level. We have so many talented individuals in our chapter. I would love to see more faces running for office! Get involved and take advantage of a great opportunity!
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about becoming an officer with the Chicago Chapter. I would be glad to explain each position to anyone with interest.
Elections will be held May 2nd at Northwestern. If you are interested in being placed on the ballot and can't attend the meeting, please email me and I will be glad to include your name. You don't necessarily have to physically attend the election. Elections must be completed May 2nd.
In other news, look for our new Web site to go online prior to May 1st. We will send out a notice to everyone once it is live! Very exciting for our chapter, as we have talked about the site for a few years now, and within a week it will be live!
Looking forward to seeing everyone May 2nd,
