Greetings from the NNCA President’s Corner!
I would like to thank our NNCA Board, Chapter Presidents, Chapter Officers, Committee Chairs at both the National and Chapter levels, and Membership. Over the last two years I have had the opportunity to closely observe the tremendous growth and development of our NNCA organization and it is due to the excellent, synergistic efforts of all of you. I am honored to assume the role of President of the NNCA Board of Directors and serve with such a committed and dedicated group. Again, thank you!
A special thank you to Terri White as she steps down as President and rolls off of the Board. Terri’s legacy of service as President will be permanently etched in NNCA history as she led the relocation of the NNCA Memorabilia and Oral History Collections to a professional preservation organization and oversaw the establishment of the Virtual Museum. Susie McCord steps down after three years of service as Treasurer. Susie’s committed service is admirable as she served at the National level helping to keep the NNCA on track with its spending goals while also serving in a leadership role at the Chapter level. Don Phillips steps down from three years of Board service after helping to propel the NNCA forward as its Networking and Communications Champion. Under Don’s leadership as a Camaraderie Goaltender we have all watched the transformation of the NNCA website and the development of a Member’s Only website. Terri, Susie, and Don we are so very grateful for your service. Thank You! I would also like to extend a special thank you to Cindy Coyle as she ends her service as Newsletter Editor. Thank you Cindy for keeping us up to date and for your many excellent contributions to helping us continue to move forward. I look forward to working with the new Board and members, Vice President Kriste Grau, Treasurer Maryalice Morro, Secretary Alice Bova, Nurse Corps Traditions and Legacy Goaltenders JoAnn Smith and Robin McKenzie, and Camaraderie Goaltenders Renee Kramer, Dan Wasneechak and James Hosack. Don Phillips will continue to support the Board, NNCA, and our Website Development as a Special Assistant, and we extend a big welcome to our new Newsletter Editor Kathy Serbin. Kathy, we look forward to working with you. I also want to applaud the efforts and tremendous support from our Executive Director Kim Lyons! Kim became Executive Director during my first year on the Board and I have had an opportunity to watch her business excellence and organizational acumen first hand. Kim thank you for helping the Board achieve its goals.
A special note of gratitude goes to the Palmetto Chapter for coordinating and hosting the 2015 Annual Meeting in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina! The accommodations, food, and activities were excellent. The ceremony recognizing Navy Nurses who served during the Vietnam Era was memorable and very special! Thank you Renee Kramer and Palmetto Chapter for helping us acknowledge the service of these nurses during the Vietnam 50th Year Commemorative activities. Finally, I urge our membership to stay involved with NNCA, through your local chapter on a committee, board position, or at the national level. We have such an awesome legacy!
Sandra Bibb, President
