DSCN3700Spring has arrived and that means the Board of Directors and Annual Membership Meetings are just around the corner!  For three of us, this will be our last board meeting.  I’m sure that Don and Susie would agree with me, this experience has been invaluable, enlightening and rewarding!  Don Phillips took on the work of the Networking and Communications Committee and, even with a steep learning curve, made our new website happen!  Susie McCord, in her role as Treasurer, has kept us in line with our spending goals and limitations.  We also say goodbye to our Newsletter Editor Cindy Coyle.  We value her expertise and passion and wish her well in her future endeavors.  I also want to thank Kim Lyons, our Executive Director, who is both advisor and friend.  Her keen business sense and creativity has led to more efficient and cost-effective business operations!  NNCA is lucky to have her.

Our major accomplishment this year was “The Move” of our Memorabilia and Oral History collections from Port Orchard, WA to History Associates, Inc. in Rockville, MD.  HAI has completed cataloging nearly 1,400 items and we are nearing the launch of our Virtual Museum.  JoAnn Smith and Sandra Bibb worked diligently through the holidays on several new Policies and Procedures for the accession of Memorabilia, as well as training programs to facilitate the new process.  We’re recruiting volunteers to serve on these committees.

NNCA has joined the Department of Defense Vietnam War 50th Anniversary Commemorative Partner Program, with Renee Kramer at the helm of this committee.  During the next two years, NNCA will focus (in our meetings and newsletters) on the contributions of Navy Nursing during the Vietnam War.  Please participate by showing our Vietnam Veteran members our appreciation!

The Board extends a warm welcome to our new Board Members James Hosack, Maryalice Morro, and Robin McKenzie!  And we want to announce that we have found a new Newsletter Editor, Kathy Serbin, who hails from Illinois.  Kathy will introduce herself in the July 2015 newsletter as the new editor.  Also congratulations to Kathy on the completion of her Doctorate!  Lastly, I urge our membership to stay involved with NNCA, through your local chapter on a committee, board position, or at the national level.  I’ve had a wonderful year with a terrific Board and I know NNCA is in good hands!

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.
