The Phi Tau Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society is now accepting nominations for the 2015-2017 Board of Directors. The offices of President, Treasurer, and Faculty Counselor Governance Chair are slated for election this year. Any current member can be nominated or nominate themselves for an office.
We strongly encourage all members to consider serving as an officer of the Phi Tau Chapter. Officers serve to engage members, promote activities and events as well as advance the profession of nursing at every level. For a description of the officer duties please go to Chapter Officers then click on each officer job title for a description of their expected duties. Meetings are typically every other month at a convenient meeting time. If you live outside of the Thomasville/Tallahassee area, various meeting modalities can be used to facilitate participation including telephone conferencing, Skype, and/or Blackboard Collaborate. Active faculty support and guidance is ongoing throughout the year.
