Greetings to all!
I hope you all are enjoying a wonderful autumn. The RWJF ENF Alumni Board continues to work hard on our strategic plan that I outlined for you in my last letter. We are planning to move our strategic thinking into a strategic plan that we will present to you at our Annual Meeting in February. If you have any comments or suggestions, please contact me and I will forward to the appropriate Board member.
Andi Williams (firstname.lastname@example.org) has been sending out notices and reminders for our February meeting at the lovely Miraval Resort in Tucson, Arizona. The Board will meet on February 23 and 24. The Annual Meeting will be held from 4 6:30 PM on February 24. On February 25 - 27, we will focus our attention on the conference that will deal with resilience. I hope you all are planning to attend. This is going to be an unusual and rewarding experience!!
At the recent American Academy of Nursing meeting, Sue Hassmiller held a "Call to Action" meeting that focused on RWJF's Future of Nursing new Initiative, "10,000 Nurses on Boards by 2020." As part of the next steps, I committed the RWJF ENF Alumni Association to form a Committee to encourage, support, and mentor our Fellows to serve on more Boards. If you are interested in serving on that Committee, please contact me (email@example.com).
Remember, we are always soliciting members for all our Committees!! This is YOUR association!! Please help us by becoming an active member!
Happy Autumn to all!
