A huge thank you to Monica Rogers who has made it possible for us to host a great program. Barb Jones will be conducting a ‘Calculating Your Value’ webinar. Not only will it provide great information, but you can also earn MLA CE credits. In order to get the most out of the program, please bring past annual reports or any statistical data you have. Also, if you have a laptop, please bring it to ensure we have enough computers for everyone.
Directions:Enter the main entrance, you’ll see the coffee shop. From the coffee shop head straight south towards the main elevators. Turn left at the wall (near Release of Information office) then turn right at the next wall (near Patient Advocate Office) and follow the corridor past elevates through the double doors.
The June ICON meeting will be held in Lincoln at Bryan College of Health Sciences at 1 p.m. Pizza will be provided for lunch. After the business meeting, the program will be our annual mini-MLA. We'll discuss the MLA meeting and distribute vendor swag.
Who’s ready for Spring!?
I look forward to seeing everyone at the March 7th meeting. There has been a meeting location change. We will no longer be meeting at the College of Saint Mary’s. Instead we will meet at Bergan Mercy Medical Center located at 7500 Mercy Road at 2:00 PM. The location change was to bring you a great program. Cindy Perkins and Jim Bothmer will present, Creighton HSL and ACH Library: Boldly going where no one else has gone before! I hope everyone can make it.
Directions to the Bergan Mercy Library:
If those attending park in the visitors lot in front of the hospital, you come in the Maternity door and turn left. That leads right to the library and the meeting room is next door. If you park in the garage, come in those doors and turn right and walk down the walkway (going east). When you come to the Maternity front door, turn right and there is the library.
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
