Jane S. Nichols, MSN, WOCN
Our ranks have grown tremendously and attendance at the 2014 FAET Conference in Gainesville showed it. A record number of 130 attendees had the Mardi Gras experience with excellent accommodations, food and friendship.
Many thanks to Shirl Rogers and her committee for unmasking each topic with expert speakers in our wound, ostomy, continence specialty.
At this conference we also elected new board members. Congratulations to Ellie Hofer, our new Vice President and Doug Rye, our new Director of Membership.
At the Board of Directors meeting on Friday, February 28 the board appointed Linda Ravenhorst as the new editor of the newsletter, FAET Connections. Brandee Heath was named Chairperson for the FAET Connections reporters. Maria Soto will take charge of the Continuing Education functions for contact hours and Nancy Scott will coordinate special projects.
As the incoming President I will strive to continue the excellent presence of FAET in our state through our annual conference and scholarship programs.
Plans for next years’ conference in Cocoa Beach are underway. Jackie Wisemen and her committee have reviewed topic suggestions from this years’ meeting and are planning a comprehensive educational conference with time to enjoy the Atlantic shore.
Enjoy your summer….remember the sunscreen!
