Welcome to TSAOHN Online
Dear Texas Members,
Once again, we have proven that things are Bigger & Better in Texas! I don’t know if you had the opportunity to hear the wonderful comments from the AAOHN Board members and staff, so I wanted to make sure you knew. Over and over again, compliments about Texas volunteers reached my ears!
“The Texas group is always willing to step in and help.”
“I’ve never seen a host chapter/state participate at this level!!!”
“All we have to do is mention that we need some help and Texas folks start showing up.”
“Wow, I’ve never seen anything like it – ask and you shall receive Texas help.”
Please share with your fellow members the outstanding job they did in every aspect of the National Conference. We set a precedent that will last a long time. In fact, the staff commented that they hoped the Texas can-do spirit would rub off on the Bostonians for the 2015 conference.
Karen Barrett, RN, COHN-S, CHSP, FAAOHN
