HomeSymposia Vendor Registration 2017


Dear Colleagues:                                                                                                                 

I would like to announce that ACONS is planning their 9th Annual Southwest Regional Oncology Nursing Symposium. The event will be held August 12, 2017 at Hotel Albuquerque.

We are planning talks to include nursing considerations from the perspective a cancer survivor, nursing considerations for immunotherapy and checkpoint inhibitors, patient-centered approaches in managing the treatment of CLL, understanding the complex biology in treating non-small cell lung cancer, advances in treating metastatic breast cancer, and another talk to be determined.

This event includes a full day of learning opportunities, as attendees will receive CNEs for participation.  We are reaching out to a broader audience this year. Last year those in attendance came from areas outside the surrounding communities to include Clovis, Los Alamos, Santa Fe, Henderson NV, Torrance CA, Glendale AZ, Show Low AZ, and Prescott AZ, California and as far east as Minnesota.  We had just over 100 registrants.

Our Symposium last year was changed based on the input from the vendor in 2016. We received very high marks from the vendors on our set up that increased vendor exposure to the participants. Vendor tables will be set up again on the perimeter of the room where participants will eat both breakfast and lunch. 

For those who are new to the industry and as a reminder to all the Goals ACONS Board of Directors follow and our purpose spell out ACONS PRIDE.

1)   A=Adhere to the 6 core values of the ONS-Integrity, Innovation, Stewardship, Advocacy, Excellence and inclusiveness

2)   C=Cultivate Oncology Nursing in area schools

3)   O=Offer educational activities/programs to increase oncology nursing knowledge and networking opportunities

4)   N=Nurture community awareness of our profession through education and participation in community events

5)   S=Supply access to a statewide informational, networking and employment opportunity portal

6)   P=Promote advocacy on behalf of people with cancer including their families and caregivers

7)   R=Retain and increase membership for ACONS at the local and National level

8)    I=Increase legislative involvement of ACONS members

We hope that you will join us again this year to support the Oncology Nurses who care so well for our loved ones.
