The North Central Region has 121 members who live in one of these nine states: Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Our most active chapter is the Nightingale chapter located in the Scott AFB area.
If you are not yet a member, I encourage you to join. As a member, you will receive with your Welcome Letter; a copy of the latest Rendezvous (our 8 ½ x 11-inch, 55-page newsletter full of information and member photos); instructions for accessing the SAFN website (where you can access the color version of the Rendezvous); a SAFN lapel pin; and, my favorite, our SAFN Directory, which lists contact information for all of our members. Aren’t you a little bit curious to see if you can find any of your long-lost friends? If you do decide to join, dues are $25 annually, payable by 31 January. If you are undecided and have questions, please email me at NorthCentralDirector@safn.org
Colleagues, after careful deliberation and consideration for the health and safety of our members, I have decided to cancel our September 17 - 10, 2020 North Central Region meeting in Milwaukee Wisconsin. Several other regions have also canceled their meetings this year. The next time we will have a regional meeting will in 2022 -- and I hope we can have it in Milwaukee! Planning is going forward with the next National SAFN Convention in Nashville Tennessee on August 24 - 28, 2021 -- I hope we can have a robust and enjoyable get-together.
