Gearing up for Convention: Get Registered Now!
Hello Future Nurses,
Another semester is almost gone, and now it is time to reflect upon our accomplishments and challenges as we gear up to take a break for the holidays and be with our families, which as most nursing students know, sometimes takes a back burner when we are actively engaged in classes and clinicals.
I was pleased by the turnout of the second annual College of Chapter Boards held at Herzing University in Madison on October 18th. This one day informative event gave the attendees a larger insight into what they can do to help grow their boards, as well as valuable information about our upcoming Annual Convention. A huge thanks goes out to Mr. Daniel Golson for all his assistance as well as Herzing University for hosting this successful event. I would also like to thank Potbelly’s Sandwiches for providing lunch for the attendees as well as my entire Board of Directors for all the hard work they put into making this event great.
Speaking of convention… the 66th Annual WSNA Convention will be held from February 6-8, 2015 once again at the Kalahari Resort and Convention Center in Wisconsin Dells. School chapters should start planning now on attending and I hope this year to be a record breaking year for attendence. There is so much interesting content we are planning for you and hope that you will come away from the Convention satisfied, relaxed and educated.
You can find convention information at WisconsinSNA.com. You are able to register right online! When you visit the website, visit the Convention section, and click on REGISTER NOW!. You can choose the type of registration, fill out your registration forms, and also purchase souviner tshirts. NSNA members receive a $40 discount from Convention, so make sure to register there first and have your membership number ready when you register. Also on our website, there is a School Chapter section where you can submit your events and have it added to our calender. You can also send in pictures that you may have taken, and we would love to display them as well.
WSNA wants to be more involved in our individual school chapters. If you would like to have a Board member make a field visit, there is a quick form on our website to do that. We would love to be present at your events and will try to accommodate all your requests.
I look forward to seeing many of you at the Annual Convention, and hopefully some of you are thinking about running for a Board of Director’s position. February can’t come soon enough.
WSNA President, 2014-2015
