NATIONAL BOARD OF DIRECTORS RETREAT
NOVEMBER 3-5, 2017
It had been 5 years since the National Board had a face to face meeting and retreat. We meet monthly via confenence call, but the opportunity to spend time together face to face is a special gift. We met in Chicago, and Michelle Knap, our Region 5 Representative, offered her church for our gathering space. We all stayed at a near by Hampton Inn. Our retreat leader was Tammy Divine, from Portico Benefit Services and our ELPNA National Board Advisor. Tammy lead us through a discernment process of recognizing our individual strengths, values and gifts and then how we can use these gifts to strengthen our ELPNA organization. We had opportunity to worship and share together, bringing us closer together as a group of strong women empowered by God and the Holy Spirit. Enjoying good food together at local restaurants gave us time to just enjoy one anothers company. It was a wonderful time and we all came away saying we are so blessed to be part of this wonderful group. We invite all our members to consider joining this board!!
Photos will be coming soon!!
GET CONNECTED WITH OTHER PARISH/FAITH COMMUNITY NURSES THROUGH YAMMER HERE'S HOW
The easiest way is to go the Church Health Center website, www.churchhealthcenter.org, where you can fill out a form to request an invitation. Since the Westberg Institute (our network) is a closed platform, members must be invited to join.
Once you have joined this platform you can join any of the groups that are of interest - like the Lutheran Parish Nurses group. You can even create a new group and invite others to join.
