2019 Conference Registration

Skamania Lodge firepitOur annual NWone Conference and Meeting of the Membership is May 19-21st, 2019. It will be held again at the much requested Skamania Lodge in Stevenson, Washington! This event is designed to connect, inspire and educate nursing leaders at all levels.

Keynote Presentation by Moe Carrick: Leading Brave
This skill-based, interactive session will deliver tools and skills for showing up with a brave heart, a clear point of view, courage and resilience. Utilizing the ground breaking work of Dr. Brene’ Brown’s work on courage and vulnerability, and pulling from research and content from her forthcoming book, Bravespace: Creating Workplaces Fit for Human Life Moe offers inspiration, ideas, and practical techniques for you to shift how to be brave at work.

Pre-Conference Event: Join us for an enlightening discussion on creating resilient work environments with senior nursing leaders in a panel discussion followed by a connection session.

There will two professional break-out tracks to choose from: The Advancing Leader and the Emerging Leader.

The "Advancing" track focuses on experienced leaders. This track is engineered for nurse leaders expanding their strategic and program management capabilities. Examples of sessions include developing leaders, succession planning, communicating success, aligning organizational change with strategic planning.

The "Emerging" track focuses on aspiring and growing nurse leaders who supervise, coordinate or manage care teams and projects while working closely with other leaders across organizations. Examples of sessions include managing from the middle, linking operations to strategy, personal advancement and development.

This year we are incorporating exercise, activity and time to clear your mind with purposeful walks in the fresh air surrounding the beautiful lodge. Barre3 is an exercise method that can be done while at your desk and there will multiple sessions throughout the day to demonstrate the methods taught in this go anywhere exercise method.
