It was good to hear from many of you while attending the Annual/National ENA conference in Los Angeles- it is looking like the 2017 event in ST Louis will shape up as terrific for educational content and networking options. A number of colleagues have preregistered while onsite in LA, but you can also access the very early bird registration fee of $580.00 on the www.ena.org website, you can pay in full or just place a $100.00 deposit to lock in the price. This low fee is till late DEC, check the website for more details.
A summary of the resolutions- GA16-01-Recognition for International Military Members was adopted, GA16-02 Trending Effects of Marijuana- was adopted, GA16-03 Education in Care of Behavioral Health Patients was adopted, GA16-04 Standardizing Handoff Reports- was voted down after a lengthy discussion of efforts and failures from numerous other states, GA 1605 Proposal to Amend Bylaws was sent for additional revisions, GA16-06- Handguns was again this year defeated but the assembly did have discussion open among all the delegate for over 2 hours to invite feedback, concerns, etc. both as a personal issue and professional one.
