    Planning for the Annual Spring Symposium begins over a year in advance. This committee is responsible for coordinating all components related to the symposium. We develop a program that provides current topics for emergency nurses and offers CNE that assists in maintaining certifications such as ECRN, TNS, and IDPH requirements for pediatric facility recognition hospitals. Participant evaluations from the prior year help give direction to this planning. The two-day symposium offers the Advanced Clinical Program (for APNs and experienced nurses), General Sessions, and an expansive exhibit hall.

    The committee also plans the Board-sponsored networking dinner that is open to all emergency nurses during the Thursday evening. A Silent Auction is an annual event at this dinner and all proceeds from the auction go to the Emergency Nurses Association Foundation for scholarships. This social evening also includes the Annual Awards presentation, honoring Illinois ENA members recognized for outstanding service and contribution to emergency nursing. Our meetings are held monthly. It is a labor-intensive committee, but we have lots of fun!
