AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAPTER PRESIDENT- PLEASE READ!
The chapter has had substantial support from our industry partners and we are in great shape financially. Dorotea Murphy and I have served on a board position in one capacity or another since the beginning of the chapter’s existence. Denise Thunberg has served in the position of PR Committee Chair for one year and as treasurer for the last one and a half years. The time involved in serving is not necessarily time consuming but it does take time. I am completing my Doctorate of Nursing Practice and have a demanding work schedule with 80% travel, but I appreciate the fact that we all have demanding schedules, priorities and demands on our time.
The GCINS chapter needs each and every one of us to make this chapter great. New energy, ideas, directions are vital to keep the chapter from becoming flat and to truly represent each member of the group. Your voice is valuable and matters! In May my tenure on the GCINS board will come to an end. Despite our efforts to get new blood no one has come forward to take board positions. On our last board meeting call Dorotea, Denise and I recognize that we cannot renew our board positions for the 2017-2018 year. That leaves the unfortunate reality that if no one comes forward we will have to disband the chapter. Please, take the time to think about your ability to serve, on a small scale or large scale, it can all be worked out.
The board members are open to your thoughts and ideas and most importantly your willingness to take a board position so the chapter can continue and thrive.
