  • Fall Business meeting notes 10/26/15

    Therese Speers, President Elect, called the meeting to order and thanked our administrative support staff member, Denise Rowe, for ordering and setting up refreshments for the meeting. Additionally, Therese Speers introduced the current Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) Beta Upsilon Chapter board members present. She also showed the attendees the two Sigma Theta Tau Showcase of Regional Excellence Awards, Presidential Call to Action – Connectedness and Gratitude, that were presented to our chapter by the National office.

    A guest speaker, Cara Foster, introduced the American Heart Association Walk that will take place in Downtown Phoenix on March 19, 2015. Two walks, a 1-milewalk and a 3-mile walk will start at 9 AM. Festivities will start at 7:30 to 8 AM. Beta Upsilon members were encouraged to register and solicit pledges for their walks.

    Cindy Via, MSN, RN, from Banner Desert Medical Center, was the guest speaker for the Fall 2015 business meeting and spoke on the “Essential Oil of Lavender.” Cindy passed around a vial of lavender oil and explained its potential uses in healthcare.

    Kelly Froehlich, our Nurse Leader Counselor, presented three community leaders for possible induction. Cyndi Holcomb, our Faculty Counselor, presented ten graduate students, eight RN-BSN students, two Concurrent Enrollment Program students, 11 Post-Baccalaureate students, and seven Traditional Prelicensure students for possible induction. Attending Beta Upsilon members voted on each candidate.

    The members asked that a task force be performed to consider giving partial scholarships for the induction fees. Cyndi Holcomb, Barbara Fargotstein, Jackie Beals, and Julie Sebag volunteered to meet and bring back recommendations to the board members.

    Barbara Miroballi and Therese Speers will be representing our chapter at the 43rd Biennial Convention in November 2015. Attending Beta Upsilon members also brought underwear and socks for the toddler to teenage residents of Casa de Elizabeth orphanage in Imuris, Mexico. Orphanage Aid International will deliver these items to the orphanage.

    Thank you to Kim Vana (Archivist) for taking notes and pictures and presenting them to be posted on the website.
