2017 Mississippi NursesAssociation Annual Convention

Nursing Colleagues:

On behalf of the Mississippi NursesAssociation’s Board of Directors, I am honored

to welcome you to the Mississippi NursesAssociation’s 106th Annual Convention,

Explore, Ignite, Excel: The Power of Nursing! I know you’ll enjoy joining with

your colleagues from across the State of Mississippi and our surrounding states

as you experience this much-anticipated event!

Clinical, leadership, workshops, and trending topics – the Convention offers

a plethora of continuing education sessions from which to select. Take time

to connect with our numerous exhibitors during the extensive Exhibitors

Debra Allen, MSN, RN Expo featuring the latest in products and services. Don’t miss an opportunity

to network with your colleagues at the University of Mississippi Medical

Center School of Nursing Alumni Reception for alumni and friends on Wednesday evening. On

Thursday evening, the Bringing the 70s Back: PAC Party will give you a chance to network, hear

the best in Motown and Disco, and have a great time while you support the MNA PAC. Feel free to show

off your best 70s style and you might just be the “Coolest” (best dressed in 70s style).

The House of Delegates is a key component of Convention. The decisions of the House of Delegates will be

instrumental in determining the strategic direction of MNA. This year’s House of Delegates will convene

on Wednesday, October 18th to elect four MNA Board positions: President; Treasurer; Director, Council

on Nursing Education; and Director, Council on Organizational Affairs along with three members for the

Committee on Nominations. The House of Delegates is important to MNA and to the advancement of the

nursing profession. I commend all the MNA members serving in the House of Delegates.

I look forward to getting to know you better during Convention and again, thank you for being a part of

this extraordinary event!

Sincerely,

Debra Allen, MSN, RN

President
