IVAN Second Annual Seminar Highlights

June 1, 2010         

The 2010 IVAN 2nd Annual Seminar was held Saturday, May 1, 2010, at Elmhurst College, in Elmhurst, Illinois. It was a very successful CEU event, with 5 nationally known speakers, 61 attendees, & 13 vendor sponsors/exhibitors at the Vendor Fair. There were awards given to Ryan Spatz for “Member of the Year” and to Rose Koshy, for her dedication & vision as founding member and first President of IVAN.  The four lucky winners of the Baskets of Nursing Goodies were Kathleen Hamzik, Denise Blackburn, Jaclyn Tropp, and Nichole Dvorak.

Rose Koshy introduced her successor as President, April Swenson, who in turn introduced the new Vice President, Beth Rogers. Rose will now serve a two year term as treasurer, as well as a one year term as Presidential Advisor.  Mary Santiago, Secretary, and Connie Girgenti, Membership Chair, assisted April, Beth & Rose with speaker introductions, handing out the baskets and CEUs at the end of the program, and helping members with various questions. 

The IVAN Board would like to recognize and thank the Vendor Sponsors/Exhibitors for their support:  Access RN, Inc., & Kris Gundrum, for sponsoring the afternoon coffee break (those were great brownies!); Bard Access Systems, & Eryn Ellis and Debbie Boyce, for sponsoring two speakers, Kathy Kokotis, our lead speaker who got us off to a  powerful start, and Dr. Peter Rothenberg, of PacerView Technologies, who explained the intricacies of ECG PICC tip location and placement;  Navilyst Medical, & JP Guilbault, for sponsoring breakfast; Ethicon/Johnson & Johnson, and Turner Smith, Jr., who assisted us in applying for an educational grant that sponsored Dr. William Jarvis.
