Chapter Update

Posted over 2 years ago by Tamara Scott

Hello to all my fellow hospice and palliative care colleagues.  I wanted to give you an update on our chapter.  It has been difficult to get speakers for our educational meetings and attendance has also been pretty low at the educational meetings that we do have.  Your current board members (3 of us) are coming to the end of our terms.  We need input from the membership regarding how to proceed with the chapter.  Please respond to the following questions in the comments:

1.  Are you interested in having the chapter remain active?

2.  Are you willing to volunteer for a board position in order to keep our chapter active? (President, Treasurer, Secretary, Membership)

3.  Do you have any ideas for speakers/topics for our educational meetings?

Your board members are anxious to hear your feedback.  Please respond by Friday, October 7th and we will discuss the results at the end of our educational meeting on October 19th.

If we decide to keep the chapter active, we will need to have an election by the end of October or beginning of November.  Please let me know if you would like to run for office and what position you are interested in.

Thank you in advance for your participation.

Yes, I am hoping the chapter will remain active active. I am very willing to take on a leadership (officer) role.

You can call me anytime, and I will call you back if I cannot take the call. Texting is good, too.

I’m a new member as of today. Although I am unable to serve in a leadership position at this time, I would be interested in attending educational events. I’m also an ELNEC trainer and could help teach if needed.
