Great 100 President's Letter October 2019

What an incredible 31st Gala we just celebrated in Concord last week! It was a fabulous evening and so nice to get to meet so many of our 2019 Great 100 recipients, scholarship winners, distinguished guests, family members and friends. The Gala Committee worked for months to make the night memorable for all those in attendance. The convention center was beautifully decorated, the festivities for the night were inspiring and the dancing made the night that much more enchanting! We hope each of you enjoyed the evening as much as those of us on the Great 100 Board of Directors. We hope our recipients felt like the center of attention!

Our board recently met for our annual retreat to prepare for the upcoming year, set goals, look at our strategic plan, and implement new ideas. It is hard to believe in just a few short months the 2020 Nominations will be open and a new year will begin.

Who do you know that stands out to you as a peer, who stands out to patients and their family members, who stands out at your facility as an outstanding nurse and caregiver? Who are those you know who are truly incredible nurses? They shouldn't go unnoticed! They should be a 2020 Great 100 Nurse and recognized in October of 2020!

The Great 100 Board of Directors is sponsoring a Great 100 Workshop to help get our 2020 nominations underway! This is a great opportunity for those who might have thought about nominating someone in the past and haven't, or have nominated someone and their nominee wasn't selected. During the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to write a nomination for a Great 100 Nurse and receive mentoring tips. This is a chance to become skilled at writing a Great 100 Nomination by those who have had nominations selected in the past. The workshop will take place:

Friday, January 17th, 2020 from 9AM-2PM
UNC Rex Hospital, Heart & Vascular Auditorium, Raleigh
Cost $40 per person to cover cost of lunch/room/CEU's. (you do not have to be a nurse to attend or nominate)
Registration Form Available Online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2020-nc-great-100-writing-workshop-tickets-80136190503
Contact Renee Bridges (publications@great100.org) or Rhonda Creech (Rcreech@vidanthealth.com) with any questions.

We hope to see you on January 17th!

Anne T. Brown, DNP, RN, NEA-BC
President, The Great 100 Board
