Members, Your Chapter Needs You!

Dear infusion colleagues,


Your chapter of the Infusion Nurses Society needs you! We are looking for new members for the board. There has been a small group of us that have been on the board for quite a few years now. Although we enjoy our commitment to the CT INS, we are looking for new ideas and different perspectives to keep our chapter fresh, progressive and educationally gratifying. Would you please consider running for a position on the board? We still have experienced board members involved and very willing to mentor new board members.


Please consider becoming involved in one of the elected positions on the board for the next upcoming Spring election in 2017. The following positions are positions that are “elected” positions:


President-elect (this is a 3 year commitment. President-elect then becomes President, then moves to the Presidential Advisor position) Treasurer



Positions available that are volunteer: Membership-chair


There are benefits extended to active board members that we can discuss on a one on one basis if you are interested in serving on the board. Please contact me via e-mail at or via cell phone at 203-232-8857 for more information.


Come join the excitement!


Hope to hear from you soon,




Robin Tentoni

President, CT INS
