First City Chapter legislative news.

Members of the First City Chapter of GNA have been actively engaged in a variety of legislative advocacy initiatives. In November 2010, the chapter hosted a Legislative Forum with Senators Lester Jackson (D-Savannah) and Buddy Carter (R-Pooler). The Senators shared legislative issues and priorities and interacted with the nurses regarding their concerns and priorities. Faculty and nursing students from Armstrong Atlantic State University also participated in this informative, interactive event.

In December 2010, First City Chapter Chair Arlise Clark-Milton, GNA Director of Workforce Advocacy Dorethea Peters, GNA Director of Membership Development Sally Welsh and First City Chapter member Pat Milton attended the "Eggs and Issues" Legislative Forum sponsored by the Savannah Chamber of Commerce. Local and state elected officials discussed legislative priorities and the Chamber presented its official legislative priorities for the 2011 legislative session. The First City Chapter is also providing some financial assistance to a nursing faculty member and nursing students from Armstrong Atlantic State University to attend GNA Legislative Day at the State Capitol on February 17.
