SONA Call for Nominations
SONA is in critical need of DELEGATES to this year’s ONA Convention! We will pay for registration and double occupancy room. As the second largest district, we have 67 seats to fill. Delegates this year will be voting on a major organizational structural change to ONA. Delegates participate in discussions and vote on ONA leadership, bylaws changes and proposals that guide the work of ONA for the next two years. It is also an opportunity to receive CEs and network. If you can only attend one day let us know.
The 2017 ONA Convention will be held at the Hilton Polaris in Columbus, Ohio October 6-8, 2017

Every 2nd Monday at 4:30PM - SONA Office
Human Rights Committee/Barron Center Clinic every Saturday from 10 AM - 12 PM
The SONA Human Rights Committee has been operating a nurse’s clinic one morning a week since 1994.
With the opening of the Barron Center for Men in October 2015 the number of residents has grown. We are actively looking for new volunteers to assist in operating the new clinic. Volunteer nurses assist homeless adults. Care involves assessment, vital signs, blood pressure and glucose monitoring, referrals and supportive communication with residents.
For those of you who are working on the Central Ladder, this is an excellent opportunity to provide community service.
If you would consider joining this project please call SONA at 523-426-6582 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to come to the clinic during a Saturday morning from 10am - 12pm.
