  • Spring 2017 Business Meeting March 27, 2017

    Spring Business Meeting Synopsis March 27, 2017 Thank you to our hosts at Phoenix Children's Hospital.

    Dr. Therese Speer, President, called the meeting to order.

    Amber Wright, MSN, RN, CPNP from Barrow’s Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s Hospital presented a fascinating slide presentation on “Clinical Pearls for Nursing Care of Patients on the Autism Spectrum.” The clinical pearls were well received by the attendees, which included STTI members and nursing student guests.

    Dr. Therese Speer 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 and scholarships by emailing Dr. Therese Speer or Dr. Kim Day by April 12, 2017.

    The membership agreed to continue the process of assisting inductees with part of the membership fees if provided evidence of financial hardship. Meals for inductees will be paid by the Beta Upsilon Chapter. The membership wishes to continue 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.

    Prof. Cyndi Holcomb presented a list of student and nurse leader applicants: 1 community leader, 8 graduate students, 3 RN-BSN students, 3 Concurrent Enrollment Program students, and 23 Traditional undergraduate students.  All applicants were accepted for membership.

    Dr. Kelly Schultz presented the job descriptions for all open positions on the board: President Elect, Governance Chair/Faculty Counselor, Leadership Succession Chair, and Chapter Archivist. Members were encouraged to email Dr. Kelly Schultz 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.

    The chapter membership also agreed to collect t-shirts and packaged underwear for adults at the SHOW Clinic – small to medium adult sizes, according to Dr. Kim Day.

    Dr. Therese Speer also encouraged the members to participate with her team at the March of Dimes Walkathon on Saturday, April 8, 2017. 

    Thank you to Archivist Dr. Kim Vana for her contribution of this synopsis.
