New Year New You?

You betcha! We're making some changes.

First and foremost, if you haven't done so, take the time to familiarize yourself with our website. We're making changes to the site based on your input. So, be sure to let us know what you think. Do you want more information? What changes would you make? Is the site difficult to navigate? What features would you like to see? We want to hear from you. 

Second,  we're making changes in our services to provide you with the best possible return on investment for your membership. And, since we weren't involved the telepathy study at Harvard, you'll need to answer a few survey questions that will guide our strategic planning and operations. Your responses are anonymous through SurveyAct. So, give us your best dish and your wildest wish! Don't be afraid to dream big. Look for the link to this survey in your inbox soon.

Third, did you know that this is our 25th year as a founding chapter of AALNC? I hope you'll join us in honoring our founding members and celebrating their achievements. Without them, AALNC wouldn't be where it is today. This year, join me on a journey from the past to the present. Then watch us grow as we plan for the future. I hope you'll join us on that journey. Stop by our next event and say, "Hi!" I look forward to meeting you.

Best wishes!

Networking is an integral part of our job as a legal nurse consultant. We are constantly networking to find experts in every medical/nursing specialty, meet new attorney-clients and win possible cases. Strike up a conversation with your neighbor, in the airport, or in the grocery store line. Meet as many people as you can when you go to professional conferences. Carry business cards and exchange them. This is not the time to be shy. You need to get your name out there. That’s why I have always found it important to keep in contact with people near and far. You never know when you will need the expert you met several years ago. I have recently changed positions and I’ve met up with some former experts that I used years ago. It really is a small world and keeping up friendships and professional relationships are vital.

Several months ago, instead of the typical format of a “Lunch and Learn” during our bimonthly gatherings, we hosted a networking lunch and had record attendance!....
