Message from our President ~
As a dear friend reminded me, the beginning of the new year is a time to stop and reflect on our 2023 journey as a chapter/region. This year is filled with uncertainty and spirited from challenges and trials. As you know, the WOCN® Society is moving forward with their timeline for the reorganization plans. The community online portal has now been set up! The membership will receive an email as well as posting to social media to inform on how to become engaged within their respective chapter community. We will do our best to keep you informed of the reorganization palns and encourage you to participate in the chapter community.
Despite unexpected hiccups, we had a very productive Winter 2024 board meeting. Plans are underway for the Fall Conference "Building Bridges in the Schenic City: Expanding WOC Practice", August 22-24, 2024 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. This is a wonderful opportunity for members from Tennessee to volunteer to execute plans and gain networking opportunities to ensure our attendees have a fabulous conference. You will obtain PGP points for your service to the Southeast Chapter/Region and hopefully be inspired to consider running for an office with the board.
As we navigate through this season of change, let's rewrite and/or highlight our chapter's narrative so that at the end of the year we will reflect on a better version of us, stron and resilient.
