Welcome to 2018!

We are just into the New Year and Influenza has reared its ugly head and posed many challenges across the healthcare continuum and our membership.

Unfortunately, due to personal reasons Lynn Skelton is unable to fulfill the elected role of APIC Chicago President for this 2018 year. Diane Cullen President-Elect has offered to step into the President role and Lynn will assume the role of President-elect for this upcoming year.

I am proud to introduce the 2018 APIC Chicago Board of Directors:

President: Diane Cullen

President-Elect: Lynn Skelton

President-Past: Linda Stein

Treasurer: Mia Cuttitta

Legislative Representative: Anjali Bisht

Bylaws Chair: Barb Ruber

Membership/Recording Secretary: Lisa Sanders

Education Director: Asif Saiyed

In following through on our commitment to introduce OPEN board meetings. The first open board meeting will be held on February 16th, 2018 (following the conclusion of the Hand Hygiene Symposium). I would like to highly encourage all our members to participate in at least one of the four quarterly meetings. It’s great to receive feedback and to obtain ideas that originate directly from our APIC Chicago members.

Our first educational offering is a Hand Hygiene Symposium- “Report from your local experts”

This is a wonderful opportunity to see how our Colleagues and Physicians partners are addressing the challenges of Hand hygiene. Please visit the website to sign up for this member free event.

Look forward to seeing you February 16th!

Linda
