1 NYS ID/DD NURSES ASSOCIATION NEWSLETTER Vol. 22, Number Two Summer 2015 President s Message Greetings. Summer is here in most of the state, finally. Our conference committee has worked since our last conference to plan our fall conference at the Albany Marriott and they have assembled a wonderful group of presenters to address a variety of clinical issues as well as professional issues dealing with changes within our systems, changes with in healthcare and ethical dilemmas that those changes present. A valuable member of our conference planning committee. Karen Jarvis, Zone 1, recently completed her multi-faceted treatment plan for an aggressive form of breast cancer. Our last conference in Syracuse was dedicated to her and she has appreciated everyone's best wishes. This past month she was honored by her treatment center, the Richard E. Winter Cancer Treatment Center at Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center in Ogdensburg NY. She was asked to give the keynote address at their Survivors Dinner. She gave what was said to be a well-organized speech that covered the nurses perspective as a patient in a variety of treatment types. This was attended by 18 family members including her father and mother, our current recording secretary Trish Potocar. We are assembling a good slate of candidates for election this year. I would like to remind everyone that the best source of candidates for office are people who have the time and are able to attend spring and fall board meetings as members of the Executive Board. Please encourage nurses you meet who are working in the field to attend our annual conference and to the Executive Board meeting. Expenses for elected attendees, which include Zone officers as well as the Board of Directors, are reimbursed. Members are always welcome and encouraged to attend when possible. Many of us began our involvement in the Association by attending an Executive Board Member Meeting. Thank you all for WEB SITE Keep checking the website (www.nysidddna.org) for all the information and forms that you need for the state conference in the fall. It will be more important than ever this year as changes are made. See the photo of current officers serving on the Board of Directors on the Officers, Committee Chairpersons and Zone Officers page. Check out the What s New page for information of interest on state, zones and general medical updates. The most recent newsletter is also available for downloading.

The Association continues to support its members' activities in nursing law, education, research and practice.

2 President-Elect s Message After a long winter it looks as if the beautiful weather has finally arrived! Please take time to enjoy each day with those that surround you. The NYS ID/DD Nurses Association reminds us to make a conscious choice to stay focused on our mission to grow and evolve, becoming strong advocates, making a difference in the lives of those men and women we are privileged to support.

Always remain mindful of, and embrace the tremendous difference you make in the lives of the men and women we support. I would continue to ask each member of the organization to proactively choose to share your gifts and talents, purposefully creating a future illuminated by capturing unprecedented solutions shared by our nursing organization. Together we continue to gain personal and professional growth by participating in the activities that are provided by the association throughout the Zones in the state, and the Annual Conference.
