  4. Events and Products

    Training and Education

    • The Chapter conducted multiple training classes in First aid, CPR, Automated External Defibrillator (AED), bloodborne pathogens and emergency preparedness for their workplace clients throughout the year.

    Outreach and Communication

    • The Chapter maintains an active training calendar and provides information services through electronic and print newsletters, and their web site.
  5. Results

    During the first year of the Alliance, the alliance partners were not able to arrive at a plan that would result in more collaboration in the efforts of the partners. The Chapter used its own resources to conduct all the workplace training that was completed in 2009, and did not use any of the resources of the Area Office.

  6. Plan for 2009

    Dialogs with the Chapter will be continued in an effort to seek greater collaboration.
