 News from the VONL President (12/1/17)


In September our membership voted in support of partnering with the Organization of Nurse Leaders (ONL), since that time the current officers of VONL have been putting together what we want to see with this partnership based on the feedback we received from you. My next conversation with ONL is Monday December 4, one of the items we are negotiating is that all current VONL members will have their first year of membership in ONL paid for.  For now I ask you to hold on renewing your upcoming VONL membership, until I provide you another update in the next week or so. We may also have a short window of time to recruit additional members, so think about your colleagues who may be looking for this opportunity.

 I have had the opportunity this fall to attend  the Monthly board meetings of ONL, and I am excited about what our future holds with this partnership. Their next quarterly meeting is Friday December 8, 2017 in Burlington Mass. 

More updates soon!
