Dear Southeast Region Members,

My first year as President of the Southeast Region soared by at a rapid speed. The older I get, the quicker the year rockets by! Last year, the Region worked through the challenges of fulfilling WOCN® Society requirements towards operational conformity of all the Regions and Affiliates.  Our new Operating Guidelines, adopted at the 2015 Membership meeting are posted here on the SER website, and our region has successfully complied with all the Branding Standards of the Society.   

SER of the Wocn® LogoAs we celebrate the beginning of 2016, we commemorate the New Year with our new and improved Southeast Region logo.    

In late January, your SER board will meet in Greensboro NC to plan another exciting year for our region. I am so blessed to work with passionate and talented WOC nurses to lead our Region.  As we say goodbye to our outgoing board members Patti Haberer (Past President), Trudy Huey (Director of Conference Planning), and Trena Beckham (Secretary), we welcome to our newest board members: Elaine Rush (Director of Conference Planning) and Angela Graham (Secretary). Many, many thanks to our outgoing board members for their time and devotion to our Region; and welcome to our new friends!  “Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other is gold” is the old saying that holds true year after year. 


2016 SER Conference LogoPlan to join us in Greensboro NC, August 25-27, 2016 for “WOC Nurses Soaring to New Heights”. Karen Sanders, Conference Chair and her team have been hard at work assembling a fantastic line up of speakers and educational opportunities.


If you are attending this year’s WOCN® Society Annual Conference in Canada, please join us for our Regional Meeting. Stay tuned for more information.

We welcome all members to be more involved with our Regional activities. If you are interested to serve on the Board or participate with conference planning in the future, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me (or anyone on the Board).  Thank you, WOC nurses; for all that you do to serve your patients, your communities, your colleagues and your families.
