Are you an Advocate for Sigma Theta Tau?
Involvement in Sigma Theta Tau has provided me an opportunity to develop leadership skills that has enabled me as an individual to be a better advocate for my patients, for my nursing colleagues and for my profession.
For our chapter to be vibrant and viable, we need members! Members who faithfully pay dues every year, and members who are active and involved on the local, regional, national and international levels.
Our local events included raising awareness of the honor society with our students with a Gamma Alpha an orientation table for students as they began the school year. The informational tea for potential inductees was another highlight and success with culmination of our decoration of the First Nurse’s Float in the Rose Parade. We participated in, “The Believe Walk” for Cancer prevention. We also collaborated with the School of Nursing for a seminar on “Publish don’t Perish.”
Regionally we had an exciting and successful Odyssey Planning and Implementation Symposium.
Our members had poster entries and poster winners. We had a record number of attendees and as always, we were most grateful for Jan Michaelis’ involvement in overseeing all the audiovisual effects.
Nationally- we have 2 representatives from Gamma Alpha Chapter for Nurse Faculty Leadership Academy. We have successfully fulfilled all our required activities to maintain chapter status.
One of our main goals this year is to expand our role of influence in the Clinical area for leaders. We would like to invite and induct 5 new nurse leaders next year.
We, the Gamma Alpha Chapter have a collective responsibility as an organization to speak for our profession. As we reflect on where we have been and where we are going, we want to ask you- Are you an active participant in Gamma Alpha? If not, there is no time like the present.
