Welcome to the MAR WOCN website! We have just completed another very successful, excellent fall conference in Richmond, Virginia. If you haven’t attended one of our conferences, I would highly recommend that you consider saving the date for next year in Frederick, Maryland. Stop back often to check for additional information. I would like to thank co-chairs Linda Arundel and Lou Ann Rau as well as the entire Central Virginia Affiliate committee for their hard work in creating a fabulous learning opportunity for us all!
We welcomed new officers into our Board at conference. Outgoing officers included myself, as President, Jane Fellows, secretary and Rhonda Holbrook, Member at Large for Communications. New officers include Lisa Owens, President; Joan Sullivan, President Elect; Secretary, Lindsay Balderas-Baca and Joanne Biddix, Member at Large for Communications. Welcome new Board members! Running for office or being a chair for a committee is an excellent way to become more involved in the region and a great way to give back to our Region!
We also named a Nurse of the Year for 2016 at conference. This year, Phyllis Green won this very prestigious honor. Please click here for more information about Phyllis.
This is my final President’s message as I now turn over the Presidency to Lisa Owens. I would like to thank the region for affording me this opportunity. It has been quite a learning experience!
As we move into this holiday season, may you all have a blessed time with family and friends!
My best to you all!
