Agenda: February 17th, 2021, Zoom Meeting, 1pm

  1. Hi Everyone, thank you for coming to the second meeting of the semester!
  2. Some updates about what we discussed last meeting:
    • We are pulling together a fundraiser in Luis’s honor, I will let Alyssa, our fundraising director, talk more about that.
    • We are also working on putting together a Volunteer Day of Service in Luis’s honor as well, that will be coordinated by Taylor White, our volunteer director.
    • Stay tuned for updates of specific dates.
    • There is also a Padlet that was posted to the SSNSA Facebook page as a place for people to write memories, share condolences, and post photos of Luis.
      • The page will close on February 28th and will be translated to Spanish and shared with his family.
  3. There is also an opportunity to be involved in the North Bay Science Discovery Day
    • A STEM event for 4th-8th grade students
    • Saturday March 13 from 9am -6pm
    • Initial plan is to prerecord a video presenting a hand hygiene activity for kids to do at home.
    • I would love to get some volunteers for choreographing the activity presentation and film editing.
      • If you are interested in hearing more about this event or about getting involved please reach out to me, Ana, or Taylor.
  4. Based on the poll from Facebook, we noticed a greater interest in the Pre-nursing Q&A Night and the New Grad Q&A Night, so we are going to move forward with planning those nights and circle back to the other options when those are done.
    • If you are interested in being a speaker or know anyone who might be interested, please reach out to Danielle or Sarah for the Pre-Nursing Night, and reach out to me for the New Grad Night.  
  5. Speaking of polls, I did a general availability poll on Facebook for scheduling future events for SSNSA.
    • If you have not completed the poll yet, please do so we can try to schedule things when the most people can make it.
    • So far it looks like Wednesday, Sunday, and Monday evenings are the top availabilities.
  6. We also wanted to let you all know that SSNSA is allowing social justice nursing seminars for countable hours.
    • If you come across one that you believe would qualify please forward the info to me or Sophia the Communications Director to be able to get others the opportunity as well.
    • Only catch is if it an event you are using for school credit then it should not also be used for SSNSA hours, please keep those separate.
    • One coming up was just emailed from Ana Valdez: Dr. Piri Ankerman-Barger will be presenting the topic of Racism and Cultural Humility in Nursing on March 1st at 4pm
      • https://www.google.com/url?q=https://SonomaState.zoom.us/j/84408704720&sa=D&source=calendar&usd=2&usg=AOvVaw07z6KW2gJSWxTVRZVpL4Gy
  7. Are there any updates or announcements from the Board Members?
  8. Any updates from Dr. Napoli?
  9. Any updates, questions, or comments from the group at large?
  10. As always, reach out if you have any questions or concerns, and have a great day!

  1. Hi Everyone
  2. Welcome to the first SSNSA meeting of the semester!
    • I would like to start with some quick housekeeping things since this is our first meeting and then we have some important and saddening news to discuss afterward.  
  3. So, to start, since the last meeting we got our Secretary in place, thank you Olivia Janku!
    • We have two remaining positions to be filled, Volunteer Coordinator and Legislative Director.
      • Taylor White has graciously offered to take on the Volunteer Coordinator role.
      • If anyone else is interested in this position, I would like you to speak up now and we could plan a vote.
      • If there are no other takers, then I hereby motion to appoint Taylor White to the board position of Volunteer Coordinator.
    • Now I would like to open the floor for anyone who would like to be eligible for the Legislative Director position.
  4. Go around and have board members introduce themselves and they can describe what their role is.

    • Would starting a Facebook poll be easy enough to schedule these events when most convenient for people?
  8. Now as some of you probably have heard, Luis Cid Balderas, a junior in the nursing program passed away on his 28th birthday this last Thursday. This has been shocking and heartbreaking news to us all.
    • I would also like to open the floor now to anyone who has further ideas on how to support his family or any commemorative event ideas in his honor. We will be discussing these ideas in greater detail during the board meeting to follow but I would love to hear any ideas from the group at large.
    • And if you think of any ideas later feel free to reach out to us either via email, the Facebook page, or the Instagram page.
  9. Any updates from Dr. Napoli?
  10. I also want to remind you all to keep track of your hours!
