The state conference is now accepting names for speakers for the next conference. Contact them with ideas. The conference will be in Reston VA 3/8-3/11/17.
We now have 76 members, an increased amount of students and new members. Some NPs have been lost due to not knowing when their dues are. The VCNP is good about contacting members by email several times to remind them they are coming due, so make sure your contact info is up to date with the VCNP. There was discussion re: annual renewal.
July meeting is on Linzess at The Mercantile.
August discussion- should we have a meeting or take the month off? We will need to plan for our legislative meeting in September, so we will plan to have a meeting.
Legislative update. We are going for full practice authority after much work and collaboration with like-minded groups.
We will align our local nominations with the state nurse nominations so we can get some great names in for nominations!
Treasurer’s report was given.
Philanthropy- Empowerhouse has been our project for the spring. We collected donations during our local conference. There is also a “Night of 1000 pies” being held to support Empowerhouse on 8/26/17. It will be at Dr Rosemary O’Grady’s home and they are looking for sponsorship. Our VCNP could sponsor an “alamode” level for $250 and includes 2 tickets, or a Whoopie level of $500 and get 4 tickets, An email will be sent to see who would be interested in attending.
Jessica thanked us for the flowers and card.
Next local Board meeting to be decided between 6/27 or 7/12 at Orofino or Legume.
