President’s Message – November 2016

November President’s Message

I hope that all of you have been enjoying our amazing autumn weather. November has arrived and of course we know that Thanksgiving will be here before you know it!  I would like to follow with the theme of “Thankfulness” and first off thank Julie Mower and CCI staff as well as Deb Warren and AORN for allowing us to have a wonderful meeting and dinner at AORN Headquarters.  We are so fortunate to have our national association’s headquarters in our very own backyard.  Thank You!   Our presentation on Unique Device Identifiers was very interesting.  Remember you can obtain your CEU by registering at AORN under webinars.  Thank you, Denise!

We have a busy month with our meeting as well as Fall Workshop.  I would really like to see a strong turnout at our Saturday meeting being held at Denver Health.  Our own Tammy Woolley will be presenting on her recent mission trip..  The following Saturday will be our Fall Workshop at Lowry.  You should have received your registration form by email as well as regular mail.  PLEASE, we really want a great turnout since this is a fundraiser to support educational grants for you, the members. We have a great line up of speakers as well as a great representation from our vendors who we collaborate with every day. They will appreciate your stopping by to see what they offer. Encourage your peers and students to attend,

I am thankful for all of our members who continue to support the work of our chapter through volunteering to be on a committee; hosting a meeting; providing speakers;holding and office.  Without your generosity of time we could not sustain our chapter.  Thank you!  For those of you who wish to be involved, please consider running for an office, board position, or nominating committee for the  upcoming year.

See you Saturday  November 12 at 0800 at Denver Health

See you Saturday November 19 at 0800 at Lowery

Lastly, I wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving!  And Thank you  for being a perioperative nurse.
