September President’s message


We had a great start to another year meeting at Children’s Hospital .  Thank you to Tammy, Karin and Faith for sponsoring the evening and a great meal from ????


Thank  you to everyone that signed up to help on our committees.


The membership voted to donate $1000 to the AORN foundation this year.


Congress is in San Diego this year. We are allocated 16 delegates for Congress; If you did not attend last year and want to be considered please let Mary Jo Steiert know and complete the delegate point worksheet that is located under forms on this website.


Concerns were brought up about where the funds from the Bill Lord Golf Tournament go.  There were concerns about how it is advertised if the funds do not fully fund the scholarship fund.  Anyone knowing the history behind this event please let me know at


We have a wonderful chapter and one of my main goals this year is to increase involvement from our inactive membership.  If you have any ideas on how to reach out to our membership and increase active involvement with our chapter please contact a board member or me.


Don’t forget the fall workshop and OR nurse’s day at the museum.  To help with either event contact Peggy Camp for the fall workshop and Nancy Johnson for the day at the museum.  Hope to see many of you at both events.


Our next meeting is October 11th.
