AORN of San Diego County

Welcome to the 2014-2015 Chapter Year

President's Summer Message
We had a wonderful meeting on June 26th. Tricia Hunter gave a great presentation on Surgical Missions, and I think may have even fanned a flame in some of our member's lives to give back. She also acted as the Installation Officer and the new 2014-2015 Board and Nominating Committee were recognized.

A big thank you goes out to Randy Blattler for his leadership and vision for our chapter. He is a huge supporter of the Boy Scouts of America and an avid outdoorsman so we thanked him with a gift card to REI! Thanks Randy!

The chapter will be taking a short recess for the months of July and August and regrouping in September with our first meeting being held on September 25th.

Save the date Saturday November 1, 2015, we will be holding a 1/2 day workshop at the AMN Healthcare Building. Details to follow.

Don't forget to continue to save those old phones and ink cartridges and bring to the meeting for our rebate fundraiser.

As the song goes "See you in September, see you when the summer's gone." Have a great summer!!

Vickie Pierce, RN, BSN, CNOR

This is a chance to "get your foot in the door" and may give you the experience to find a position in the rapidly developing field of Social Media. Please read more in our monthly newsletter and if you are interested contact President Randy.

Ways & Means Opportunity:
We could use a person with a special touch to help with the "ways and means" committee. The leadership is in place and we could benefit from some fresh new ideas. If you would like to help the team to make our chapter activities more profitable and enjoyable contact President Randy.
