New Officers Elected

by Brette Winston

The Georgia Chapter elected new officers for the year: Amy Imes, GNP-BC, was elected President-Elect and Amy Saulsby-Smith, MSN, ARNP, was elected Secretary.

Preparations for the summer quarterly business meeting are underway and nominees for the local chapter award are being reviewed. The winner of this award embodies service and leadership within the world of advanced practice nursing and patient care, and will receive a scholarship to the GAPNA Annual Conference.

A President’s Manual was developed by the outgoing President, which is aiding in the transition of new officers. The Board of Directors will be meeting soon to officially welcome the new officers. In the meantime, planning for the local annual education conference, mentor relationships with local universities, and community service remain a focus.
