Welcome to the Washington Chapter

Chapter Information

Greetings,

As you already know, the chapter board made the difficult decision to cancel our in person conference that was scheduled in September, 2021. We felt this was the right decision to make based on the pandemic surge during that time. Thank you very much for your patience and understanding as we continually shift as dictated by the covid numbers.

Nevertheless, we would like to use this opportunity to increase our on-line educational offerings and we are actively reaching out to speakers and educators so we can provide webinars at the start of 2022. Please keep an eye out for this information.

Additionally, we are already planning for our in person conference in 2022. We are making every effort to make 2022 our best year yet, in education offerings and networking opportunities.

One last thing, our chapter is seeking nominations for several positions opening up in 2022. We are looking for an RN Member at Large, an SW Member at Large, a President Elect candidate and Treasurer candidates. If you would like to find out more or are interested in being a candidate, please email me at chambersmona@gmail.com. The deadline for nominations is November 12th. Ballots will go out in January, 2022, with results coming out in November. Newly elected officers will begin on May, 2022. 

Thank you very much,
Mona Chambers, MN, RN, ACM
Washington Chapter President
