Announcing This Year’s October Conference Reimagined! FedEx Day

Fedex truckFor the past three years, the CIE and PDI sponsored NMC October Conference has been a wonderful day of collaboration and engagement for all faculty and staff. However, due to the pandemic we are not able to collaborate in the same way… Rather than virtualize the day through many Zoom sessions, we will refocus professional development on a different type of collaboration and growth. This new day empowers employees to co-create development to share ideas and engage collaboratively, igniting passion and energizing employees as we work toward accomplishing something to make an impact on the College, our learners and/or our community that cannot be achieved during the regular workday.

Kudos!

Honoree’s Name: Mac Beeker
Honoree’s Dept./Division: Nursing
Reason for Kudos: Mac gave an inspiring presentation to the Board of Trustees at Monday night’s Board of Trustees meeting. It was an awesome story of the long-time relationship between Munson and NMC. In Mac’s own words, “I’d be hard-pressed to offer a better example of a symbiotic relationship between a healthcare system and a community college.” Lots to be proud of…

I have the task of lining up the presentations for the meeting and delivering the intro. materials. We had a change in a scheduled presenter, and I went to Mac and asked him to change to this month’s meeting — with no hesitation he said of course! He was professional, prompt, showed deep commitment, and excellence!

Thank you, Mac, for sharing about our nursing program, your department’s awesome work and for reminding us about all the heroes you/ NMC has trained that are working hard every day to provide quality care to our community and beyond!
