Attended the Region 1 Meeting in Mystic, Conn. in May. I moderated one workshop. Supplied NSH information on educational opportunities and membership information at the Registration area and was on hand to explain the benefits of being an NSH member.
Took applications for Region 1 Histotechnologist of the Year. Purchased the Award and had a name plaque made. Judy Keller from Rhode Island was the award winner.
Attended the Region 1 President’s Meeting in April.
Assisted with contacting vendors and sending out registration forms and information to them for the Region 1 meeting.
Attended the NSH BOD teleconference in April
I have kept in contact with all the state societies and can report that all are fully operational.
Helped Kathy Treat, Maine Society President, with information and sources about setting up the Region 1 Meeting in Banghor, Maine for 2011.Wrote and contacted the NYS Governor’s office to get a proclamation for National Histotechnologists Day. Unfortunately, the Governor had many important state matters to attend to at the time.
I will be trying again after the state fixes its budget problems.
I served as Board member of NYS Histology Society and was on the Awards Committee for the 2010 Scholarship awards.
On Feb 5th I attended the Histotechnology Program reopening ceremony at SUNY at Cobleskill, NY. Columbia Memorial Hospital is an affiliate teaching site for the college and it was most important to be in attendance to stress the importance of this program to the community.
I also requested from the Program Director at SUNY Cobleskill, Dr. Pamela Colony, that she submit to the college a request to put the NSH website link in their website for the Histotechnology Program Information. I was informed that my request has been accepted and is completed.
Kept all state societies reminded about National Histotechnology Professionals Day. I purchased shirts and provided a luncheon for my staff. Purchased NSH posters and had an Open House for the hospital staff.
I have been assisting the NYS society with acquiring a new more user friendly web site. If this works out we may go forward and establish a new Region 1 website with the same source.
I attended the NYS Histology meeting in May. I also brought NSH information on educational opportunities and membership information and was on hand to explain the benefits of being an NSH member. I moderated 2 workshops as well.
