Do you have an idea to share with the ONS Board? Would you like to know what your colleagues have to say about what’s happening in their work environment? At the ONS 40th Annual Congress, we are introducing a new approach for members and the Board to connect and discuss current issues in oncology nursing and cancer care. Two “Innovation Exchange” sessions are being offered on Friday in the learning hall and will serve as a substitute for the usual single Town Hall session. The Board and staff are in the process of developing the 2016–2018 strategic plan, and these sessions give members an opportunity to wibit inflatable water park discuss what trends and changes they are seeing in the cancer care environment. As a member association, ONS has been built on the ideas and needs of members. Questions that will guide the conversation include: What issues are you facing in your day-to-day practice? What do you see coming down the road that will affect you and your patients? What can ONS do to make your life easier?
I hope you will attend one of the sessions and share your views. We are looking forward to your feedback to help ONS move through the next 40 years and beyond.
