President's Message

by Karen Sanders, BSN, RN, CWON

A Year for Accomplishments

Dear Colleagues,

As I write my first message as president of the NC WOC Nurse Group, I am energized as I look forward to 2016.  The Southeast Region of the WOCN® Society conference will be held this year in Greensboro.  We all have a lot of important work to do.  As president, it is my responsibility and my desire to inspire the membership to participate and support the success of this educational offering taking place in our great state.

When moving forward, it is always a good idea to reflect back.  Under the leadership of our past president, Laurie Crookenden, meeting locations were rotated to encourage member attendance at our quarterly meetings. This will continue in 2016 and member feedback encouraged changing the meeting day from Friday to Thursday to balance workloads.  A scholarship was awarded to a NC WOC nurse group member to attend the 2015 SER WOCN conference this year as a result of an attendance incentive and drawing.  We will continue to find ways to promote our meeting attendance and support our membership.

I encourage all members to make plans to attend our quarterly meetings this year and get involved with conference planning and implementation. 

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” –Helen Keller
