We are reaching out to you with a BIG ASK to help us recognize the decades of nursing leadership through your pictures and stories at our WONL Fall Conference at the Osthoff Resort in Elkhart Lake Wednesday September 18th through Friday September 20th.

Our BIG ASK is that you send us a picture and/or short story that highlights key leadership topics or stories during your tenure that reflect the decade or decades that you lead.

WONL will be posting these stories and pictures in 10-year segments: 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s, 2020s

Our goal is to collate pictures and stories in advance of the conference and share these during our time together.
