It is that time of year to call for those of you interested representing Oregon as a delegate to ENA’s General Assembly in Orlando in September/October. Based on the number of ENA members in the state of Oregon, we have been allotted 11 delegate positions. New this year, General Assembly will be over the course of three half-days instead of two days. Also new this year, one delegate must be an Oregon ENA member who has never been a delegate before.
As in past years, Oregon ENA will provide an honorarium for delegates to attend the General Assembly. Whether delegates wish to stay immediately afterwards for the Annual Conference is their choice and not required, although highly encouraged. The 2015 Emergency Conference is new and improved, combining both leadership and scientific topics into one conference.
Please see the attachment for more information and to apply. Applications are due and must be post-marked by June 26th, 2015.
