HOP to It PAC Fundraiser

We have once again put together a party you won't want to miss!  The Hour of Power (HOP) Sock Hop will take place in the VIP room of Star Lanes Polaris.  Conveniently located across from the hotel, OSANA has rented a private space with 6 private bowling lanes, games, entertainment, and our private bar and buffet area.  Dance the night away, chat with friends, or take in a friendly game bowling.  Tickets to the event include all food, drink and fun! 

 

Wanda Wilson, PhD, CRNA Lectureship

New in 2018, OSANA will offer an annual lectureship series to honor the accomplishments of Wanda O. Wilson.  A past president of OSANA and recently retired CEO of the AANA, Wanda is also the previous program director for the University of Cincinnati Nurse Anesthesia Program and it is through funding from this program's Mary Alice Costello Research and Education fund, that this lectureship has been made possible.  In a collaboration with the UC  Nurse Anesthesia Program, OSANA wants to offer a keynote lecture in Wanda's honor and to recognize all that she has done for this association and this profession.

This year, the program committee has chosen the motivational words of Chad J. Willett to speak to the conference attendees about leadership.  Chad will not only challenge the members to 'think outside the box,' but will encourage them to smash it, altogether!
