Attended Leadership after completing Scholarship/Fellowship?
Attraction to attend Leadership Conference
Reasons for Attending Leadership
Other Attractions for Attending *Specific comments on subsequent slides CategoryCountBrief summary of Suggestions 1. Additional time from work10Suggest during GSA Difficult to request time from work Change time of year (difficult as near Thanksgiving and end of semester) One day for Alumni, prefer day before GSA Attend several conferences and difficult to add one more 2. Cost of attendance11Suggest distance webinars Alumni rate expensive Reduced rate for full attendance Free registration 3. Invitation and reminder3Need to be clear that it is for all alumni
Other Attractions for Attending CategoryCountBrief summary of Suggestions 4. Content17Specific outcomes such as publication or symposium Find opportunities for geriatric nurses such as education/training re career advancement; how to mentor others; managing career for tenure Interested in learning about what members are doing in area of anxiety and depression (Geropsych) Education and networking Research for beginning and mid-level researchers including grant writing New content (doesnt change from year to year) A day for alumni to network prior to GSA Post-BAGNC for junior faculty
Other Attractions for attending Attached to GSA, hard to add on more time away from home and work. I would suggest having BAGNC alumni events DURING GSA To meet with a group to get a specific outcome achieved, maybe a publication, symposium. Offering direction in how to relate to nursing education as well as research. Due to the economy, it is very challenging to attend. I thought it was invitation only. To find opportunities for geriatric nurses nationally (including those in policy); education/training regarding career advancement; how to mentor others, managing career requirements for those seeking tenure
Other Attractions for attending I would be interested in learning more about what members are doing in the areas of anxiety and depression in older adults-- or other geropsych issues beyond dementia. Release time from job responsibilities Difficult to extend time at the GSA conference Cohort reunion Methods to enhance research for beginning and mid-level researchers. Presentation of poster or paper Education - intensive on successful grant writing from experienced researchers. More structure to promote collaborative relationships - a focus on identifying shared interests to promote collaborative research
Reasons Cont I have thought that the alumni rate was very expensive, and in this economy, Not likely to get a lot of participation. Maybe even think about making some segments of the conference available by distance/ webinars with live video to reduce costs. I do like the Alumni meeting being held during GSA and would expect that would be something that could really grow in time The upcoming conference will be my first after completing my BAGNC fellowship. I may Not attend this year since I have submitted to present at GSA, but I plan to participate in I have not yet completed my fellowship
Reasons Cont I have not yet completed my fellowship Funding opportunities Change the time of year the conference is held. I don't think it would be helpful to me at this stage. Reduced rate for full attendance I can't pay out of pocket for a full conference. I probably wouldn't have travel funds unless I was presenting. just a reminder notice of when it is held Something new at the meeting. Having things on the one day that are worth paying for. I have attended as a mentor one time since post-doc, and much was similar.
Reasons Cont One day that alumni could attend for educational or networking purposes, preferably the day before GSA commences--it is a lot of time to take off from work to attend the whole BAGNC leadership and then GSA. Invited Offer sessions that are relevant to alumni that have been out more than 3 years. I attended many Leadership Conferences hoping to network and reconnect with my cohort and others. I don't think the conference offerings are relevant to alumni. The topics and presenters have stayed pretty much the same over the years. How many times can one sit through a seminar about building a research career and pay $350 to do so? I think the offerings are very relevant to new scholars/fellows, though.
Reasons cont Free registration If asked to speak/participate. I currently am obligated to several professional meetings so adding one more is difficult. Timing is usually a problem, and always has been. Placing it with GSA means being away from work/school/family for a long stretch at a difficult time of year --- Thanksgiving holiday, end of semester pressures, etc. I did not attend because of the cost. if possible the leadership conference should offer free registration for BAGNC alumni for the entire conference (alumni still responsible for travel and lodging which is quite expensive).
Reasons Cont Often, some of the content of the leadership meeting is geared mainly to current scholars/fellows. The second day and a half is often more general, and would be more appropriate for alumni to attend just before GSA. Anything on gero, of course, perhaps some sort of a "post-BAGNC" session for junior faculty-and others-to discuss questions, issues as junior faculty. I found a similar session as a pre-doc -with people who had been through BAGNC and then obtained positions, very helpful. Some sort of a follow-up to that would be interesting. It is an expensive conference. Frankly, I would be more inclined to attend if I was a part of the conference in some way. Alternatively, I would be more inclined to attend if there were specific activities for alumni.
Reasons Cont Next steps after post doc I think it's difficult to attend an additional day. Also, there has to be a value to going. We should be able to network during GSA, don't need to do that during the leadership conference, so there would have to be a compelling reason to go. Steps to achieving tenure
