President's Message: 

Diana Mason

Keep an eye on your “snail-mail boxes”. (Yes, sometimes we still communicate the old way). I just sent a letter to fellows regarding the importance of fundraising to our 2015 priorities. I hope you'll respond as generously as possible. Of course, you don't have to wait for the letter. You can donate to the Academy today by clicking here.

Recently, the Academy held the first meeting of the National Advisory Committee for our new Institute for Nursing Leadership. Led by Angela McBride and Stephanie Ferguson, the Committee worked vigorously on developing a strategic plan for the Institute. A key part of that plan is leadership development. To that end, we will be offering an important workshop on the morning of October 15th, immediately prior to the Academy's Leadership Luncheon and the opening of the Annual Conference. We'll have more details soon, but seating will be limited, so check the website or FAAN mail for updates and block off your calendars now.

Finally, it is important for YOU to update your profile on the Academy website. Please take a minute to do it now by clicking here. We need to know what appointments you already hold as we build our database of existing appointments, identify important opportunities where we have no fellows serving, and work on succession planning for key appointments.

We're ready to move and hope you're there to move with us.
