Each Biennium, the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing President, Board of Directors, and Executive Director identify strategic goals that align with the long range plan to achieve the mission and vision of the professional organization. One stated goal is to promote the recruitment, retention, and engagement of new members who will be serving as the next generation leaders. To address this goal, STTI has formed a Task Force - the Next Generation Leaders Task Force. The Task Force is composed of selected STTI seasoned and emerging leaders from around the globe. The Next Generation Leaders Task Force members are committed to the achievement of the stated objectives of this Task Force which are: Identify strategies to engage new leaders at the individual and chapter level Identify barriers that prevent younger members from being involved and Recommend relevant topics and programs to engage next generation leaders. To emphasize the importance of mentoring emerging leaders, STTI decided that the Next Generation Leaders Task Force would be co-chaired by an experienced leader and an emerging leader. This leader-partnership exemplifies the goals of the NGL Task Force by leveraging and role modeling the blending of the experience of the seasoned chairperson with the innovative ideas and energy of next generation, or emerging leader, chair-person. Task Force meetings have focused discussion on delineating strategies to overcome known barriers to the effective and ongoing engagement of emerging leaders at both the individual and chapter levels. NGL Task Force members have identified preliminary ideas and recommendations and at the end of the Biennium will propose these recommendations to the STTI Board to support the engagement of STTI Next Generation Leaders. This poster presentation summarizes the activities of the Task Force with the goal of encouraging input from chapter leaders about how to engage, motivate, and mentor Next Generation Leaders at the chapter, regional and international levels of STTI.
