President's Message - August 2014

I must begin on a very sad note – Summer will soon be over.
During the summer the board has put the finishing touches on your 2015 conference.
The conference is being hosted by the Southwest Chapter in Monroeville, PA at the Doubletree Hotel and Conference Center.  Dates for the conference are March 11-13, 2015 and registration will be open as of August 10th
Why so early – the board has listened to your request – there will be a Pre-conference offering on Wednesday March 11th morning for the first 30 registrants. The TOPIC – Business management in OH
Please see the website www.paaohn.org for further registration details
Conference sounds like it would fit your educational and networking needs but cash short – Think about apply for one of the following awards/grants which will help with the cost – Plus make your employer take notice when they receive notification your were selected for an award/grant by your professional organization.
 Betty Mouldar Clinical Practice Award
 Dorothy Saller Outstanding Occupational Health Nurse
 Scholarship/certification Grant
 Delaware Valley Educational Grant
 DEADLINE 2/2/15
 Details on the PAAOHN website – www.paaohn.org
Another way to let your employer know how important you are – join local or state board.  We would love to have fresh blood – looking for two directors – Job descriptions on the website – or just ask a current board member – we do not bite.  Jeannie Tomlinson is the elections officer – Please contact her at jeanniek821@gmail.com if you are interested
As always if you have a question, need any information, would like to know more about the grants, awards, etc. please either email me at langyc@upmc.edu or call at 412-647-3407
Thank you
Yolanda C. Lang, Dr.PH, CRNP, COHN, FAAOHN
President, PAAOHN

Get Involved at the Local Level

We need you!  Our local chapters are the grass roots of our state.  I realize that your time may be limited and you hesitate to commit to an elected position.  However, participation takes many forms including meeting attendance, committee work, or just volunteering for a one-time special task or project.

Please consider sharing your talents and skills to help us become more successful.  Reach out to your local chapter President.  Even working on a small task would be appreciated.
