Welcome to the Region & Affiliate Leadership Resource Center. This area has been established to provide a variety of valuable tools and resources to aid in your leadership position with the WOCN Society. Whether recruiting members or providing educational opportunities, all of the resources you need are now available at your fingertips!
Did you know? Your region and affiliate receives $13 for every current member who renews each year. The more members you have, the more money your region/affiliate will receive.
Regions and Affiliates are organized throughout the country where members of the organization can share their expertise, concerns and professional issues. These groups provide an opportunity for organized exploration and discussion in an environment structured to meet the needs of a local group. This type of community results in improved care of the patient, professional growth and communication regarding the WOC nurse and the WOCN Society.
