Happy New Year!

What a 2021 we had! We planned and executed an in-person conference which was extremely well received. It was so good to actually “see” our colleagues and vendor partners. Along those lines, we are planning our 2022 conference to be held in September in Birmingham, Alabama. Jennifer Anderson, Director of Conference Planning along with Misty Edwards, 2022 conference chairperson, and the Alabama planning group are busy at work and we’re looking forward to seeing many of you there.

I’d like to thank the 2021 and incoming 2022 board members, and all the volunteers who helped plan our last conference as well as the team planning the next one. I’d encourage you all to look for ways to give back through volunteerism – your region could use a few good nurses.

I'd also like to thank Bernie Haberer, our long-time webmaster/business manager as well as his wife (and prior SER of the WOCN President) Patti Haberer for their assistance. Words aren’t adequate to express my thanks.

I’d also like to recognize David DiPuma, our event planner, for helping us navigate some interesting hurdles this past year.  

Like 2020 and 2021, the new year also holds challenges. COVID-19 continues to be an issue, but we;ve adapted and continue to provide care to our patients – without them, there is no us… Continue to focus on the positives and look for opportunities to express gratitude. Sometimes, the smallest things bring great joy. A smile, a kind word, an elbow bump can make someone's day. Don't forget the power of your words – put them to good use and brighten the day for another person. You may be surprised how good it makes you feel too – what a bonus!

I wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2022.
