PCNA Board or Committee Volunteers
PCNA encourages members to consider serving on the PCNA Board of Directors or on a committee. Volunteering with PCNA is a great way to gain leadership expertise while promoting and supporting nurses. The PCNA board currently meets monthly (Sept to June). Questions? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Banquet – The Banquet Committee plans and carries out the Nurses Week Banquet. They are responsible for planning the banquet’s theme, decorations, menu, entertainment and program schedule. They meet 1-2 times a year in the Fall for planning and as needed in the Spring.
Scholarship – The Scholarship Committee is responsible for selecting recipients for the PCNA/RONA scholarships and reviewing and proposing changes to the application process and applications. Each committee member is responsible for reviewing all of the applications individually and then the committee meets to finalize their selection. Both the review process and meeting occur in early April.
Fundraising – The Fundraising Committee plans and, with the support of staff, assists in the execution of our fundraising events and campaigns. Traditionally, we have two main fundraising events. Our Bowling Tournament at the end of February and a silent auction at our Nurses Week Banquet in May. The committee will develop and support additional fundraising campaigns – Giving Tuesday, monthly giving, etc. The committee meets 2-4 times a year to plan fundraising activities and help procure donations.
Education – The Education Committee is responsible for developing topics for upcoming education events and helping to find presenters. The committee meets 1-2 times in the Spring/Early Summer to plan topics for the coming year. (PCNA follows a fiscal year July to June.)
Community Outreach – The Community Outreach Committee explores opportunities to connect with members and promote PCNA/RONA. The committee also meets once a year in the Fall to plan for the coming year and, again, in the Spring if needed.
PCNA attends high school career fairs each year to talk with students about exploring a career in nursing. We would love to have you join us!
Medical Reserve Corps
Back in 2016, PCNA began teaming up with Pierce County Medical Reserve Corps (PCMRC) to give nurses a way to volunteer utilizing their nursing skills. As a registered MRC volunteer, nurses are able to volunteer when a disaster strikes as well as at community events.
