From April 21-23, AALNC had one of the most successful pre-Forum and Annual Forum events ever! I am pleased to report that attendance was at its highest level in 3 years with 225 amazing attendees.
The AALNC pre-Forum featured a very successful and well attended all-day session on How to Excel at Being a Testifying Expert. We also had a first time off-site networking event at Strike City Bowling, an opening welcome reception and partner reception for a total of 3 networking events! These events allowed our attendees, both new and longtime LNCs, to meet our vendors and fellow LNCs.
Many of the attendees were recipients of the ROCKS program (Random Acts of Conference Kindness) giveaways which included AALNC flash drives, drink coupons, Starbucks gift cards, AALNC coffee mugs and more! Our educational sessions highlighted: Misadventures in Cardiac Procedures, Standards of Care in Radiology Nursing, Patient Safety, Sepsis, Writing Skills for LNCs, Developing Your CV and many more quality education topics.
I want to thank the AALNC Board of Directors, AALNC Headquarters Staff, Annual Forum Committee and Director of Education for putting together a successful and well-received 2016 event. A special thanks to our attendees who took the time and commitment to attending and supporting AALNC and the continued mission of our organization to support LNCs.
I look forward to seeing many of you next year at the 2017 AALNC Forum, Portland, Oregon April 6-7, 2017.
