Welcome to our web site! CHAPTER MEETINGS ARE HELD ON THE THIRD MONDAY OF EACH MONTH @ HOMEWOOD LIBRARY @ 3:45PM. PLEASE CLICK ON CALENDER FOR MEETING INFO. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU. <

The Birmingham Chapter of AORN was established August 28, 1969 and started with 53 members.Our founder and  first president was Doris Coppage.  Our current President is Susan Southwick.

Through the years we have grown to  the largest chapter in Alabama, sending multiple delegates and alternates    to represent us in 2009  at the 55th AORN National Congress in Chicago, Illinois.   Through educational grants from our generous industry partners, the chapter funds  delegates', alternates' and sometimes members @ large expenses including registration, transportation, lodging and food. This helps to ensure that we maintain an active voice in our national organization. The attendees  are charged with obtaining critical information and sharing this knowledge with the chapter and their workplaces.  Delegates, alternates and members at large  are  chapter members  selected through a point system documented in the membership book.  This book is available for member updating  at each meeting.  All member points are tallied  each August by the membership chair and presented at the September meeting. You must become a member to enjoy the chapter funded  trip to Congress.  Denver  is the site for the 2010 National Congress.  Points accrued by members   during the 2008-2009  chapter calendar year will be used to select delegates to the 2010 National Congress in Denver.    We look forward to seeing you at our meetings.  :)
