On April 28, 2016 Kappa Tau Chapter held its Annual Meeting at the DoubleTree Hotel in South Burlington, VT. It was a wonderful evening attended by members as well as several nursing students. The keynote speak for the meeting was Dr. Polly Bednash, former Executive Director of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. She spoke of the importance of nurses serving on boards and provided some tips for those nurses aspiring to board membership.
After dinner, the Kappa Tau awards were given out. Dr. Carol Conroy received the Excellence in Nursing Administration Award. The first Laura Nosek Collaboration Research Grant was given out, as were the graduate and undergraduate student awards. The results of the ballot were announced and officers starting out a new term took the Oath of Office. This was followed by the announcement of the Silent Auction winners.
