As outgoing Chairperson of the Teaching Nurses Network, I wish to thank you for your support and encouragement during the last five years. We have achieved a lot and deserve to be congratulated. The network is expanding in numbers, we have formulated our mission statement and objectives and are about to implement a membership fee for the first time. Our website is under construction and will hopefully be launched soon.
Thank you to all our officers. Deirdre Doyle and Ann McNally in the Liberties college have set up our bank account and are our treasurers and I thank them sincerely and for their continued work. Orla Bannon is outgoing secretary and I must thank her for her dedication, motivation and tenacity to get things done.
I am delighted to welcome our newly elected chairperson, Ingrid Condell from Colaiste Phobal, Roscrea. Ingrid brings new energy and ideas to the post and I wish her the very best and pledge my continued support to her.
Our next meeting will be on a Saturday in February (7th or 28th – dates will be circulated for preference nearer the time) and I ask that we all make a special effort to attend to show our support for the new chairperson and for the continued working of the group.
