Thank you for the wonderful emails supporting the CGEAN board’s decision to give careful consideration and due diligence in continuing to host the 2014 INARC in Dallas, Texas. So many of you sent messages asking that we support Cole Edmondson and the Texas Presbyterian Hospital nursing team – I am sure you all watched the nurses on the news last evening – what an inspiring group. However, the CGEAN Board felt the staff at Texas Presbyterian needed to focus attention on operations and not be distracted by our presence in the facility. For this reason the planning committee for INARC has worked relentlessly to find an alternate site in Dallas. We are so very pleased to announce that Texas Woman’s University has agreed to provide an auditorium and classrooms for our meeting. This allows us to move forward with the excellent program planned for November. We are updating the INARC agenda and that will be posted on the CGEAN website. Until then here are the key things you need to know:

  1. The hotel has not changed. We will continue to use the Marriott Courtyard as our recommended hotel and there is a block of rooms reserved for INARC attendees. 
  2. Our opening reception and poster presentation will be held at the Marriott on Wednesday evening.
  3. The site for the preconference workshop on big data and predictive analytics by the University of Minnesota team and the conference has moved to Texas Woman's University, 5500 Southwestern Medical Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75235-7299
  4. Bus service will be provided from the hotel to the meeting location. 

I look forward to seeing you at the conference and so appreciate your patience as we worked out the details of this transition. It is so evident that you are nursing leaders – committed to the future of nursing in our country.

With gratitude, Elaine and the CGEAN Board
