Chapter Report to State Council

November 2022
San Francisco Chapter had five members attend General Assembly as delegates. Two were first time delegates. Since next year’s General Assembly will be in California, let’s hope for more first-time delegates. San Francisco Chapter had an Emergency Nurses Day celebration at Parklab Gardens. If you haven’t visited this fun place, give it a try. San Francisco Chapter is losing one of our great young nurses. Kenneth “Dock” Fox is moving to Connecticut. Doc joined ENA as a student nurse and stayed with us following graduation. He is an asset to ENA and his place of employment. We will miss you. We all wish him good luck in his new surroundings. See you in San Diego in September, Dock!!!!
