WEST CENTRAL OHIO-ONCOLOGY NURSING SOCIETY ( WCO-ONS) OUTREACH OHIO


OCTOBER 2010 OUTREACH OHIO MEETING REPORT

The last Outreach Ohio meeting of 2010 was held on Saturday, October 2nd in Columbus at the Zangmeister Center. Representatives from the Columbus ONS Chapter, as well as from the Northeast Ohio, Toledo area and our chapter were present.  

Issues discussed included:

  •         Membership/membership drives
  •         Board Member recruitment
  •         Community Outreach programs
  •         Program ideas
  •         Chapter fund raisers
  •         Scholarship opportunities
  •         Student SIG groups  
Many ideas were shared by those present relative to the above issues. This collaboration of the Ohio chapters provides a great deal of “Food for Thought” for our own chapter, as the board continues to focus on reaching out to new perspective members, as well as continuing to encourage community outreach here in the Greater Dayton area.  The chapters also shared some excellent program ideas and speaker’s names which assist all of us in the group to enhance our own chapter programs for the coming year. The next Outreach Ohio meeting will be in the spring (Saturday, April 9, 2011) in Columbus, following the Columbus Chapter’s Spring Conference (April 8, 2011). Anyone interested in attending may contact Karen Agnor (ragnor@ameritech.net) for more details.
