Steady & On Course
As I assume the NNCA’s helm, I want to acknowledge the outstanding contributions of our departing Board Members, as well as some of the mainstays of NNCA. Without their untiring commitment to our mission, endless hours of dedicated and unpaid service, along with their meticulous attention to detail, NNCA would not be on the viable course it is today!
Barbara O’Brien steps down as President, after facilitating our journey into a 21st century organization! Under her leadership, the following milestones were met: Revision of our Strategic Plan; execution of the Networking Committee’s recommendations for a new website, to include a “Members Only” secure page, electronic commerce (Ships Store) and electronic renewal/joining processes; social networking via Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn (already increasing membership); and chartering the Merchandise Ad Hoc committee to evaluate how we can efficiently market NNCA to today’s and tomorrow’s membership. My job is to follow in her footsteps and keep the ship’s course steady. In her role as Vice President, Anne Gartner was the “keeper” of the Bylaws and Policy & Procedure Manual, a tedious job, which has resulted in substantive changes to improve our processes. She also served as Chair of the Merchandise Ad Hoc Committee over the past year. Kit Tate steps aside as our Registered Agent. She has also served NNCA for years in various roles. After over 11 years, Julia Pickering steps down as Merchandise Chair, having provided quality products that not only display our logo and pride, but also raised thousands of dollars each year. Recognized during our Awards Ceremony this year were Madeline Ancelard (History Chair), Pat Sovich and Maria Rossi (Memorabilia Chairs) all of whom have served in these positions for years! We are eternally in your debt. I look forward to working with the new Board and members, Vice President Kriste Grau, Treasurer Susie McCord, Secretary Alice Bova, and Don Phillips, JoAnn Smith, Sandra Bibb, Dan Wasneechak and Renee Kramer. As you read the minutes you will see how involved each is in our Strategic Plan!
A special note of gratitude goes to our 2014 Reunion hosts Bobbie Clinton and the fledgling MidSouth Chapter (30 members) as they so graciously introduced us to the great city of Nashville! They entertained us, fed us, and sent us off on tours while they caught their breath! They gladly pass that baton to the New England Chapter who is already deep into planning 2016 in Newport RI, “birthplace” for many Navy Nurses at OIS (now ODS)! Put on your marching shoes!
Who We Are….
Established in 1987, the Navy Nurse Corps Association is a non-profit, national organization dedicated to bringing Navy Nurses together. We are an association for caring and sharing, where what matters most is not rank, but being, or having been, a Navy Nurse. Any Navy Nurse Corps Officer, whether Active Duty, Reserves, Retired, or Honorably Discharged, may join the NNCA.
