Good Health and Well-Being

The spring membership meeting was fun! fun! fun! Thanks to all who came to the business meeting and also stayed for our craft project..... decorating an egg. Just a few of the topics discussed at the business meeting included initiation of the membership reactivation challenge, nomination and confirmation of the upcoming ballot for officers, approval of proposed budget and discussion of upcoming events.
The Membership Reactivation Challenge is a new project proposed by our first ever Membership Ambassador Shaina Newton. The goal is to contact all inactive members to encourage them to renew their membership; and also remind current members to continue theirs. Our goal is to increase membership 30% by the end of May 2017. So don't forget to go online and renew your membership! Thank you Shaina for all of your hard work!!!
During the social event after the meeting; spring colors were vibrant, adding to the glow of the night's merriment. The eggs were painted bright; and a few colors ended up on hands and fingers. It was a memorable evening sharing the company of wonderful colleagues and friends. Many many thanks to Tamara Baxter and her husband for setting up the craft idea (and getting the supplies). The project was not only for fun; but to help raise money for our community service project Celebration is in order because we raised an additional $100. This gives us grand total of $592 collected so far..... above our target of $500. Go Beta Chi! We have a couple of more events which we will be collecting donations........ if you would like to donate pease contact Ruth Ann at

Our next opportunity to gather together (and for continuing education too!) is our first ever "Research Poster Carousel" on April 7, 2017. Please see flyer under our Chapter Events section for registration information.
