To Attend a Meeting of the ONA House of Delegates
Embassy Suites Hotel, Norman, Oklahoma

Wednesday, October 18, 2017, 1:30 – 4pm.

From— Polly Shoemake, RN, ONA Secretary/Treasurer

 

This notice constitutes the official call to meeting of the Meeting of the ONA House of Delegates.    The House session will be held Wednesday, October 18, 2017. The House of Delegates will convene at 1:30 p.m. adjourning at 4pm. Credentialing closes at 1:15 pm so that we may start promptly at 1:30 p.m.

Prior to the House we will have a session focused on current nursing practice issues.  During this Issue Forum, we will discuss issues related to the work of the association. A registration fee will be assessed for this day, as lunch will also be included.  For more details regarding the agenda for the Annual Convention, please see the 2017 Convention schedule. The Agenda, Proposed Bylaws, 2016 Minutes are posted on the ONA website, oklahomanurses.org. Registration is available on the ONA Website as part of the ONA Convention. 

Members of the ONA House of Delegates are elected through a regional election process and have a crucial role in providing direction and support for the work of the state organization.  The House of Delegates also provides a courtesy seat to Past ONA Presidents and one registered nurse participant from each organizational affiliate.  These delegates come to the House to work towards the growth and improvement of ONA and its constituencies.  This requires a professional commitment to the preservation and creative growth of the professional society at all levels of the organization.  Such a commitment will benefit the individual delegate, the Association and the nursing profession. The representation for each Regional Nurses Association established for the 2017 House is below. 

Each delegate must study the issues thoroughly and is encouraged to participate in Region sponsored meetings prior to the ONA Annual Convention and the Issues Forum held prior to the House on October 18th, so that they may engage in open-minded debate, practice active listening and use the extensive resources and collective knowledge made available throughout these meetings to assist them in making informed decisions.

If you are interested in having an issue considered by the ONA House please submit a reference to be heard using the reference guidelines posted on the ONA website.  Please refer to the Policies and Procedures posted on the website for guidance.
