Our President's Letter
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
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!
