January 2017 Report: SF Bay Area Hello everyone. Cheryl Randolph is on the National Conference Planning Committee again for 2017. I’m on my first National committee for 2017, the Institute for Quality, Safety, and Injury Prevention. If anyone would like to volunteer at concert events in NorCal, such as BottleRock, Outside Lands, and other concert venues at Shoreline or Concord Pavillion, please let me know. I have been volunteering for Rock Med for several years and will be definitely planning to work Bottle Rock day 2. Sign up at www.RockMed.org. Its great way to recruit new and inspiring ER nurses…BLS is the basic certifications and nursing or EMT students are strongly encouraged! Submitted by: Mindy Elayda-SF Bay Area Treasurer Kaiser South Sacramento ER.
November 2016 report: Cheryl has recovered from her surgery and is doing well. However, she plans to step down from her stint as our chapter president. We hope to have new officers for next year, soon, so we can continue to keep San Francisco a great chapter.
We sent 3 delegates to the national ENA Assembly in LA in September. Plans for 2017 include our TRAUMA CON conference in April.
