December President’s message

A very Happy New Year to everyone.  I hope you had a wonderful holiday season.


It is almost time for our January meeting.  We meet January 10th at Swedish Medical Center.


A reminder to our delegates for Congress this year; you need to complete the registration form and bring it to the meeting.  Any other members that are attending and want to register for the reduced group rate bring your registration and a check for $490 made out to DAORN.


We have a special guest this month.  Victoria Steelman, one of the AORN board members, will be visiting us and presenting the education.


Important consideration for this meeting is starting to develop the slate for officers to be elected for the 2013-2014 year.  Mary Jo Steiert has stepped down from chair of the committee and I have appointed April Erbland to complete the year.  This year we need to fill the following positions:




One board member

Two members for the nominating committee

Please give thoughtful consideration to serving your chapter.


I hope to see all of you at the meeting.  Let’s start the New Year with attending the chapter meeting January 10th!!!!


The board is having a special meeting next Tuesday, January 8th.  Please e-mail me any thing you want the board to consider or ideas to improve involvement of our membership.
