Leadership Luncheon
Diana Mason I hope you are planning to come to the Leadership Luncheon just before the conference convenes on October 16. Sue Hassmiller will present The Privilege of being a Nurse: Lessons from my Mother. Her mother, I just learned, is a 1947 graduate of Bellevue School of Nursing!

Hunter College, Hunter Bellevue School of Nursing, and the Graduate Center City University of New York are pleased to be joint sponsors of this year’s Leadership Luncheon.

We also want you present for our special announcement during the Luncheon about the Academy’s work on Strategic Goal #3: Position nurses to lead change to improve health and health care and drive policy. It is an exciting time for all fellows to be engaged with the Academy to lead change. Come to the Leadership Luncheon to find out how you can be involved.

The Academy is working with the Campaign for Action and other national nursing organizations to develop a structure and process for collaborating on appointments of nurses to various leadership positions at the national, state and local level, including to governing boards of local health care organizations and regional systems, as well as governmental advisory bodies. We were selected by these other national nursing organizations to be on the Steering Committee for moving this work forward.

The Academy will continue to prioritize federal and gubernatorial appointments, as well as governing boards of national organizations that our expert panels identify as important to their work. With the help of a national advisory committee that is under formation, the Academy will focus on developing our fellows and building our capacity to move nominations forward.

We only have a few seats left for the Leadership Luncheon. You will not want to miss either Sue’s remarks or the Academy’s special announcement. When you register for the conference, remember to also sign-up for the Leadership Luncheon.
