Fourteen Auxiliary leaders from hospitals across the state gathered at North Arkansas Regional Medical Center (NARMC) recently. Leaders from Mercy Hospital in Berryville, Northwest Medical Center in Springdale and Siloam Springs, Northwest Medical Center in Bentonville and Mercy Hospital in Northwest, AR joined NARMC Auxiliary leaders for the meeting.
"This meeting is important to NARMC since we have two Auxiliary members who currently hold district roles including, District Chair and District Treasurer, and there is an opportunity to have an incoming representative on the board," NARMC Volunteer Services Manager Robby Scucchi said. "It was our honor to host this group of giving individuals."
Auxiliary presidents from around the state meet annually in order to meet the nominees for District Office as well as to go over all of the AHAA forms and changes.
NARMC President and CEO Vince Leist spoke to the group about the important role each auxiliary play in their respective hospitals. He thanked them for their commitment to their communities.
