New for 2017, the AUPN will hold a New Chairs Mentoring Lunch where senior mentor Chairs (3+ years experience) will meet with new Chairs (0-3 years experience) to advise and help with the transition into their new role. The focus of the lunch for 2017 will be a general discussion on understanding what the new Chairs believe would be of value to them, as well as answering any specific questions.
At the beginning of the session, a demonstration of the AUPN Chair Google Group, which provides a way for Chairs to hold private, collaborative group discussions, will be given. Senior Mentor Chairs will also share "What I Wish I Knew" stories giving examples of a concept they struggled with as a New Chair and how they solved it After the session, Senior Chairs will communicate mentoring support options to the junior Chairs based on their input.
New Chairs are encouraged to complete the 2017 AUPN New Chairs Luncheon: Current Issues survey. In addition, New Chairs should bring a list of things they wish they had known when they started or if just starting, that they wish they knew.
