From GA Captain Bev MuellerHi folks, GA is right around the corner.
The General Assembly online orientation will be on ENA's website September 8, 2022. You will receive an email from the National office as well. All Delegates must complete this online orientation. We have almost three weeks to get this completed. It's not long and not difficult to complete.
Pennsylvania has 26 delegates this year. We had an allotment of 27 and one alternate. We did not make our allotment but I'm so happy we have 26 dedicated members who volunteered for this journey.
We will have a virtual delegate meeting on September 15th at 7:30 pm. Please look for emails with log in information from Gina.
The GA handbook is on the website and everyone please review the bylaws and resolutions prior to our meeting and be ready to discuss how we should vote as a group. There is one Bylaw change and seven Resolutions to discuss.
I'm old school so I printed the entire handbook, however you can have it on a laptop or Ipad or whatever way you wish to review this important information for our upcoming General Assembly.
There is a new delegate orientation on Wednesday September 28th from 6-7 pm at the Convention Center. For first time Delegates, this is a good idea to attend, it goes over all the basics.
First Day of General Assembly is Thursday September 29th with Continental Breakfast from 6:30-7:30 am
Keypad Registration is also 6:30 -7:30 am
Opening Ceremonies is 7:30 -8:30.
Adjournment of Day 1 is at 11:30 am
Day 2 of General Assembly is Friday September 30th with Amendment Assistance at 5:45 -6:45 am
Continental Breakfast at 6:30-7:30
Keypad Registration 6:30-7:30
Call to order at 7:30
Lunch is on your own from 11:30-1:30, all must be back in their seat by 1:30
Adjournment is at 5 pm
Times may vary, however all must be in their seats ready to commence by 7:30 each morning.
An important note for anyone just attending the General Assembly sessions, you must register for the conference to get your keypads. You can register to only attend the General Assembly but must register. If you don't register, you will not get a keypad.
Once you have completed the General Assembly online orientation, make a copy of your completion certificate and either email it to me or bring it to General Assembly.
We will figure out when to distribute shirts prior to GA. I hope to get to all the eve before when we are all registering at the Conference Center.
For first time delegates, each state will have a sign locating where we will sit as a group. Dress should be business casual along with our Polo shirts.
You will receive your stipend in the form of a check after the GA session is completed. We also take a group picture at the end of GA so please do not run off.
To receive your full stipend, all must be present for the entire General Assembly. Please give the presenters your full attention. GA is not the time for correcting papers or looking thru emails or Facebook. I'm sad that I even needed to state that, but it has happened in the past and people have actually left GA to go shop and return!
Thanks so much for offering to represent Pennsylvania as a delegate this year. It's humbling to be part of the interworkings of our great organization. I look forward to seeing you all in person. It's been a long time coming!!
See you in Denver!
