NOSORH and its members would like to thank the Wyoming State Office of Rural Health for hosting the 2018 Annual Meeting this past month in Cheyenne. To the volunteers, planning committee members, facilitators and scribes for the roundtable sessions, and to the NOSORH members who presented in the breakout sessions, thank you! Teryl Eisinger, NOSORH executive director, opened the meeting by demonstrating the importance of volunteerism and how it is key to the work of NOSORH, a message that resonated throughout the meeting.
Member feedback is always of great value to evaluate the success of the Annual Meeting. It guides the planning committee in the future as well as helps the NOSORH staff ensure they deliver a high quality and meaningful conference each year. The evaluations show that 91% of respondents rated the meeting as excellent. One member stated, “I really gained some great information from the main sessions and breakouts. There were excellent opportunities for networking and making friends, too!” Another said, “I needed the session on making the most of National Rural Health Day because I really needed to know what our office should be doing and how to get things done. This helped me tremendously.”
The lineup of sessions and networking opportunities was excellent, with more sessions offered than ever. “We appreciate the extra effort everyone made to get to Cheyenne,” said Eisinger. “I learn so much from listening to all of our partners and members at this meeting. The planning committee and Matt Strycker did a great job.”
