Time to register for the fall conference! Go to the conference tab and check it out!

Greetings Members!


  Please read through the following and consider getting involved:
1.  This year we are voting for a new President-elect and Treasurer!  Are you or someone you know willing to serve the region?  Let me know!  I will give you more information if you are interested.
The Treasurer is a 2 yr commitment.
The President-elect is a 2 yr commitment, plus 2 yrs as the regional president, the 1 yr as an advisor.
The transfer of the board members takes place after the fall conference.
2.  We are also in need of committee members for the Public Policy Committee.  If you want to help the Chair, please email Lydia at newenglandwocn@gmail.com
3.  We have 2 board members who have chosen to retire.  I can’t believe the region will be “losing” our 2 anchors and committed team members who chair the Youth Rally Committee!  Donna and Marian, who are irreplaceable need to be replaced.  They will be stepping down after our fall conference.  Please consider stepping forward before they leave us, so they can teach you.
Please feel free to contact me for more information.
Mary Harris, BSN, RN, CWON
Nominations Chair

Don’t forget about YOUTH RALLY! Your support is essential, check out the Youth Rally tab on this site!
