May 2017: letter.
Dear APIC Chapter Presidents and Education Chairs,
My name is Patrick Merkel and I am the Sr. Manager for Education Programs here at APIC. I am working with Crystal Moohn on an upcoming events and I wanted to reach out to share our remaining 2017 APIC EPI Intensive course schedule as well as ask for your help in spreading the word about the course, which is designed for novice IPs.
EPI Intensive is like infection prevention boot camp—with certified instructors teaching IPs the fundamentals of what they need to know in just four days, and offered at different locations around the U.S. to minimize travel expenses. Class sizes are kept small—generally around 50—to ensure a quality learning experience and adequate time for Q&A along with opportunities for networking.
Please find below the remaining 2017 schedule as well as marketing materials you can pass along to colleagues, friends, or post on a listserv to spread the word.
· Albany, NY (July 17-20, 2017)
· Milwaukee, WI (August 14-17, 2017)
· Laie, Hawaii (September 11-14)
· Raleigh, NC (November 6-9, 2017)
Here are links to the general course agenda, course flyer and fillable registration form that can be used as handouts at your next chapter event. Also attached is an electronic ad you can use in email communications or on your websites.
Additionally, below are justification documents, including a template for a letter that can be used to submit a request for funding to facility administration.
· Download PDF version of justification documents.
· Download Microsoft Word version of justification documents.
Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated, and please let me know if I can answer any questions.
Thank you for serving as a member of APIC chapter leadership. If you have any questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to let us know.
