Thank you to all that voted in the chapter elections.  Please keep in mind all the benefits you recieve from your Chapter membership.  Some examples are monthly lectures and dinners.  Some lectures include CNEs.  There are also Congress Grants, a quarterly Newsletter, and awards that can offer a chance to have your certification or membership to both National ONS and the Penns Wood Chapter paid for.  Remember we can not continue to offer all these things without members becoming more involved by stepping up to the plate and becoming a member of a committee or running for office  in 2014-2015 election. Ann Marie Gipe our nominating Chair has done a great job this past election. This is our second year holding the elections via the internet.  


Pat Frank and Joy Hepkins will continue to be Penns Wood Chapter liasion to Best of ONS Committee for 2015. Pat will serve once again as treasurer.
