AACN Local Engagement for Educational & Networking Opportunities

Chapter Leadership Development Workshop

Sunday, May15, 2022, 12 pm-5 pm
Marriott Marquis, Houston, TX

The annual Chapter Leadership Development Workshop (LDW) focuses on the needed skills for chapter officers, board members, and chairs to successfully manage and lead a chapter in fulfilling AACN’s mission. Participants often return each year and regularly rate this workshop as very effective.

This year’s workshop, planned in collaboration with the Chapter Advisory Team, will focus on the future of chapters in our new world using the Healthy Work Environment standards as our framework. Register for LDW, when you register for NTI – with class code PC125. The LDW is open to all current and potential future chapter leaders. There is no limit to the number of chapter members who may attend, for a fee of $60 each.

Each AACN chapter that attends LDW will receive a one-time $455 stipend to help defray the cost of the workshop. We highly recommend that each chapter sends their current president-elect. Houston residents: even if you can’t attend the full NTI, consider joining us just for LDW.

This is an excellent opportunity to become more involved in your chapter while building on your skills, not to mention the multiple networking opportunities throughout the day.

If you have already registered for NTI, but not LDW, simply contact our friends in Customer Care to amend your registration. Their number is 800-899-2226. We look forward to seeing you at LDW!

NTI 2022 Host Chapters & NTI Ribbons

Sunday, May 15 – Wednesday, May 18, 2022
George R. Brown Convention Center – In the Resource Center

The following Houston area chapters will serve as this year’s NTI Host Chapters:

  • Houston Gulf Coast Chapter
  • North Harris-Montgomery County Chapter
  • West Houston Chapter

They welcome you to the Annual National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition (NTI), and are sure that you will enjoy your stay in Houston.

Please also take some time to explore the city. After spending a day full of educational sessions, there's so much to experience at night. Learn more

Be sure to stop by the Host Chapter Booth to say hello and pick up your NTI ribbons. If this is your first time to NTI, you’ll want to begin participating in the popular tradition of collecting ribbons that recognize and display your accomplishments — such as chapter member or officer, certifications, years of AACN membership, voting member, plus many others.

The Host Chapters will also be available to answer any questions you may have about Houston. There is so much to enjoy at this year’s conference. If there is anything we can do to help, please ask. Above all, enjoy your stay!

NTI Chapter Rebate

AACN is offering two rebates this year for AACN chapter members:

  • $75 rebate for chapter members who register for and attend NTI in-person, May 16 18, 2022
  • $50 rebate for chapter members who register for and attend Virtual NTI, June 6 8, 2022

What you need to know about the NTI chapter rebates:

  • The rebates are available to any current chapter member who registers for and attends the conference either in-person or virtually.
  • To apply for the rebate, complete the rebate form.
    • Purchase of registration fees must be made by check, credit card or cash.
    • Rebate cannot be combined with any other rebate or discount program.
    • Rebate applies to the NTI Conference Registration fee payment only.
    • Rebate will be payable to original payor only.
    • Rebate will be issued in the same form as the original payment.
    • Not responsible for lost, late or undelivered responses.
  • Submit your rebate application any time after you receive your NTI registration confirmation. You do not need to wait until after NTI. In fact, by submitting early, it is possible that you will receive your rebate before NTI.
  • Your rebate will be processed as soon as possible. Due to the high volume of NTI registrations that typically arrive during this time, it may take up to 12 weeks to receive your rebate.
  • All rebates must be postmarked no later than June 1, 2022. This allows AACN to process all rebates in a timely manner, so it can close out the fiscal year on June 30.
