Lauri Gallimore BS, RN
President, New England College Health Association
It is hard to believe that it has been six weeks since our combined NECHA/NYSCHA conference in beautiful Burlington, Vermont. The conference was a great success in both content and participation. We had over 330 colleagues gather for three days of varied, timely and comprehensive sessions that addressed our diverse membership of specialties. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, from the food choices and quality to the content and delivery of general session speakers and individual sessions. I would like to take this opportunity again to thank the planning committee for their tireless dedication, outreach and hard work on making this conference so great!! I want to also thank everyone who took the time to provide feedback to us regarding the conference. The importance of this feedback cannot be stressed enough. It is critical to the planning of future conferences, including our ability to provide sessions that our membership want most, menu planning and the integration of other social events.
NECHA’s President’s Award and Louise Gazzara Award are NOW OPEN. Each year, NECHA honors admirable members of the community, nominated by their peers for exceptional service and commitment to the association and to the field of college health. Nominate a colleague to give them the recognition that they deserve!
