Golden West is GREEN, as much as possible.   We would like to receive our member's email addresses so that we can save trees (and postage) by emailing you a PDF version of our Newsletter, Information and Seminar Announcements.  We do understand that not everyone has easy access to email.  For those that need to receive a paper copy of the newsletter and announcements, we will still mail them to you. 
All members who  want  to receive the newletter and announcements by email, please make sure we have your email address.  Please send your email address to JoAnn Gwinn.

Think about being a Golden West VOLUNTEER

And join us at the January 19th general meeting to find out more about the possibilities of volunteering your skills and knowledge and how your participation can help all members achieve their future educational goals. New ideas are very welcome.

Without new faces joing the Golden West Board and Volunteers, a time will come when the organization will not be able to provide the educational seminars.

Many of our volunteers are retired already and several volunteers and board members are retiring soon. We continue to volunteer because we strongly believe that we are providing a good and needed service and opportunity for Central Service and Sterile Processing professionals towards attaining their educational requirements.

But we need you to step up and volunteer. You can offer your skills and ideas and throw your name out there for a board position so Golden West can keep providing our educational opportunities.

All members of the Golden West Board are volunteers and are assisted by other volunteers to help ensure that the yearly seminar is a good experience for everyone who attends.

Without the volunteers assisting the board personnel with the many details involved in preparing for the yearly seminar, this educational opportunity, which provides you with a good chunk of CEUs (in a fun environment) just could not happen.

We all work hard to keep costs down so the seminar can be an affordable educational adventure for Golden West Members and other interested healthcare professionals.

Think about joining the group by volunteering yourself. Yes it's work but it's also a lot of fun. The meetings are casual but productive.

Give it some thought!!


We have been using an email service for contacting Golden West Board members for the last few years.  Unfortunately, the service has been less than satisfactory.  This has caused some delayed responses from the Board members to our members who have emailed us.  THEREFORE,

We are now changing our contact email addresses to private/individual accounts. 
We hope this will provide our membership with better response times to your questions. Please use the new email links on the various pages throughout our website to contact Golden West.
