Chapter News

  • Spring 2016 Business Meeting Notes

    Dr. Kathy Kenny, President, called the meeting to order. Dr. Kimberly Vana presented “Screening for Obstructive Sleep Apnea.”

    Therese Speer, President-Elect, gave a report on the STTI convention held in Las Vegas, Nevada in Fall 2015, which had 2500 attendees. The new President’s Cathy Catrambone’s Call to Action has four calls: Advocacy, Influence through Policy, Philanthropy, and Life-Long Learners. The delegates voted to change the bylaws: replacing “schools” with “higher education.” “At-Large chapters” will be encouraged in communities without local higher education centers. These chapters will affiliate with another higher education chapter.

    Dr. Kathy Kenny described the awards and scholarships that were available and encouraged the membership to log on to the chapter website to review the details. Members are encouraged to nominate members for these awards by emailing a board member by April 1, 2016.

    Jackie Beals and her task force presented three proposals for reducing the financial burden of undergraduate students joining STTI while paying fees associated with graduation. The membership voted to use $1000 in the Fall term and $2000 in the Spring term to pay the induction fees and membership dues for students with significant financial needs. Cyndi Holcomb will call STTI and determine how the chapter may pay these induction fees and membership dues. The membership also voted to offer $500 to students who are giving a presentation at STTI conferences in the United States and $1000 for students giving a presentation at international STTI conferences.

    Cyndi Holcomb presented a list of student and nurse leader applicants: 2 community leaders, 8 graduate students, 16 RN-BSN students, 3 Concurrent Enrollment Program students, and 23 Traditional undergraduate students. All applicants were accepted for membership.

    Kelly Schmidt presented the job descriptions for all open positions on the board: secretary, vice-president, and community counselor. Members were encouraged to email Kelly if they were interested in running for an office.

    Dr. Kimberly Vana spoke about the needs of the children at Casa de Elizabeth Orphanage in Imuris, Mexico, and the membership agreed to continue the donations of underwear, socks, and hygiene items.
