A Welcome Message from Your President-Elect
Please join the San Diego County Chapter for our first meeting on September 25th, 2014 when we will share a meaningful educational offering and a chance to mingle with other Perioperative Professionals in your community.
Many of us are so busy with our lives that making time to attend a Thursday night meeting is challenging and yet the experience of coming together with colleagues cannot be duplicated with virtual media.  The values that we share as members of AORN unite us with pride in our professionalism, advance our practice and, speaking for myself, promote a sense of being part of something bigger than my corner of the world. I urge you to make the September 25th meeting a priority on your calendar and to help make the San Diego Local AORN Chapter strong and vibrant with your ideas and enthusiasm, your most valuable contribution. Our flyer has all the important information.

Future Meetings and Events Planned:
Save the date Thursday, October 23, 2014, Chapter meeting with speaker on  Opportunities in Military Nursing presenter is Lt. CDR George Lane  San Diego Naval Hospital. We will also have a Pampered Chef Fundraiser at the AMN Healthcare Building.

Save the date Saturday November 1, 2014, we will be holding a 1/2 day workshop at the AMN Healthcare Building. Print the program flyer for all the information and register today!

Let’s make 2014-2015 an epic year for our San Diego Chapter and show our solidarity.  I look forward to seeing you there!

Gaylene Grossman RN, BSN, CNOR
President Elect

Social Media Opportunity:
We are seeking a chapter member who is interested in an opportunity to work with our "social media" committee. 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 Vickie Pierce.

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 Vickie Pierce.
