Message from the Delta Xi Chapter President
Hello, I am Jamie Burchett, President of the Delta Xi Chapter. It was a great privilege to represent our chapter at Chapter Leadership Connection 2022. I attended #SigmaCLC22 with three other chapter leaders: President-Elect - Laurie Robinson, Vice President - Amy LePard, and Leadership Intern – Halle Vorell. It is inspiring to be surrounded by so many nurses that want to advance nursing and health care. Being part of an international organization and networking with international chapters is a great opportunity. Please look for updates on the Delta Xi Homepage or our social media for our current collaborations.
The breakout sessions that are offered by Sigma at this conference help chapter leaders strengthen the chapter for our members. Attending the conference is a time for us to learn how to better serve our members. I am glad to announce that we have already implemented a few suggestions from Sigma. For example, each year, in late Spring, Delta Xi Chapter sends out a membership survey to our members. We ask that you dedicate a few minutes to complete this survey each spring to help us better serve you. We communicate with our members regularly to share chapter updates. We strive to offer programs that will interest our members. If you have an idea in mind, please share it with us anytime at email@example.com. Sigma recommends that we support research, which we do. Please see the call for research grant applications at the beginning of this webpage (deltaxi.sigmanursing.org).
Sigma is celebrating 100 years of advancing nursing! We would like to take this time to celebrate with our members. We are looking for members to send the chapter notices of their professional accomplishments. For example, did you get published this year? Were you given an award for your efforts in advancing nursing or healthcare? Did you present at a nursing conference? Please share with us! firstname.lastname@example.org. We would like to highlight members that send us information on our social media.
We are excited to announce that we will be applying for our 4th Chapter Key Award for the 2021-2023 biennium. The Chapter Key Award recipients will be announced early Fall 2023 and awarded at the next biennial that November.
Thank you for your membership to Delta Xi Chapter’s. I hope to see you at the chapter’s upcoming events. Like us on Facebook or follow us on LinkedIn, Instagram or Twitter for the latest updates. @DeltaXiSTTI All of these platforms are linked above in the corresponding icons.
