Waves of Wisdom Conference Wows attendees.
Last summer, the Coast to Coast Chapters (C2C) convened the 8th Waves of Wisdom (WOW) conference in Orlando, Fla. More than 200 critical care nurses from throughout Florida attended this biannual event. For the past 16 years, the C2C Chapters, which is comprised of eight central Florida chapters, has organized the biannual WOW conference. The group is dedicated to providing presentations on timely clinical and administrative topics. The following comprise the C2C Chapters:
* Ancient City Chapter
* Brevard Chapter
* Greater Tampa Bay Chapter
* Heartland Chapter
* Metropolitan Orlando Chapter
* Suncoast Chapter
* Tri-County Chapter
* Volusia-Flagler Chapter
The C2C Chapters have enjoyed generous business partner support, which has enabled us to offer quality national and local speakers during the two- day conference. Many of the funds raised by WOW are redistributed to the participating chapters to offer continuing education within their local communities.
The committee is moving forward with plans for the 2009 WOW. Check out the Web site at www.aacnchapters.com/C2C.htm for updates, and plan to join us in Orlando in 2009.
A sister conference to the Waves of Wisdom in central Florida is A Wealth of Knowledge (WOK), in south Florida. These biannual conferences are held on alternating years. The WOK is presented by the South Florida Gold Coast Chapters and is scheduled for July 17 and 18, 2008 in Davie, Fla. For more information, visit www.awealthofknowledge.org.
Other regional conferences in Florida include:
* Tides of Tampa Bay, which is sponsored by the Greater Tampa Bay Chapter, a member of the C2C Chapters. This conference is held annually in November. For more information, contact Eva Sheets at email@example.com.
