Our President's Letter

Winter, 2015

Dear Members of Delta Gamma At-Large,

I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season and are now settling into the routine of a new year. As I was driving into work today I heard on the radio that January is the month of the most disputes in households as people start to get cabin fever. So this is something to keep in mind if you note yourself becoming a bit moody! Time to think of some ways to keep yourself busy and Delta Gamma At-Large has some great opportunities for you to do this.

On February 4th Delta Gamma At-Large, along with the other Sigma Theta Tau Chapters of Southeastern Wisconsin, will be holding our annual Joint Chapter Event. This event is always a wonderful opportunity for members to connect with colleagues and friends that we have not seen in a while. It also provides the chance to learn more about our great profession. This year’s event is entitled, “Nursing Roads Less Traveled” where a panel of speakers will provide us with information on the role of nurses in a variety of settings. The conference will be held at Alverno College starting at 5:30 PM. See the Delta Gamma At-Large website and Facebook page for more information and for how to register.

Our induction ceremony will be held on April 26th starting at 1:00 PM. Our induction ceremony is always a wonderful and inspirational event. It allows us the opportunity to celebrate with new inductees as well as serving as a reminder as to why we all became members of Sigma Theta Tau International. All members are always welcome and encouraged to attend. We are also looking for volunteers to assist in planning as well as to assist the day of the ceremony. If you are interested, you can contact any member of the board for more information.

Another upcoming event is the “Building Bridges to Research” Conference that will held at the Marquette campus on May 8th. Delta Gamma At-Large is a sponsor for this event and has a booth set up to provide visibility for our chapter. We are looking for individuals to help man this booth. It does not have to be all day, but can be broken into shifts so that all can enjoy everything the conference has to offer. We hope that you will take the opportunity to attend this great research event that is held so close to home, and if you would like to help at the booth, please contact a board member for more information.

As we move forward, we continue to examine past events and to explore areas for future growth. In November we held a Meet-n-Greet at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin to provide employees information about our chapter. We are planning another Meet-n-Greet at the Wheaton-Franciscan Health Care Organization for spring. This June, Sigma Theta Tau International will be starting a new biennium. Delta Gamma At-Large will be working to achieve a Chapter Key Award for this new biennium. We will be looking for volunteers to assist with both of these activities, so continue to visit the website and Facebook page for more details.

Finally, the time is coming to elect new officers to the board of Delta Gamma At-Large. If you or someone you know is interested in taking on a larger position within the organization, please consider this wonderful opportunity. Even if you are not that familiar with DGAL, you will be mentored by experienced board members. Watch for the nominations forms which will be out soon. Even if you do not wish to run, please be sure to vote for the elected positions within the next few weeks.

As you can see, we have been busy and still have work ahead. I am excited to move the chapter forward as we explore ways to recruit and retain active members. I hope to see you at some of the upcoming events!
