A Note from the Section Chair

Recently I had the privilege of meeting with the leadership team of Virginia AWHONN. Due to inclement weather, we were not able to meet as planned shortly after the New Year. It was time well spent, meeting with new section and chapter leaders and planning for the next two years. We are welcoming some new faces to the leadership team but all leaders are dedicated to promoting the health of women and newborns.  

With the leadership, I have taken several steps to make Virginia AWHONN more accessible to the membership. First, I have appointed a Section Coordinating Team consisting of the Section Chair, Secretary/Treasurer, Public Information Officer, Chapter leaders and two members. The team is tasked as an advisory to the chair and a resource to the membership by assisting with meetings, education, and dissemination of information. Please visit our website to find a Virginia Chapter and view your leadership team.  

Next, Chapter Leaders will be holding at least three meetings per calendar year. These meetings are to include educational, social/networking and community service opportunities.

Additionally, I have appointed Britney Howell as our first Student Nurse Coordinator. Britney is tasked with designing avenues for student nurses to become familiar with and involved in Virginia AWHONN.
