Get involved in your association and make the most of your membership
One member, one vote
We thank members for exercising your right to vote on matters of importance to the association. Results will be announced at RNAO's annual general meeting (AGM) on April 17. RNAO's AGM will be available via live stream on RNAO's website. Check RNAO.ca for details. Results will also be published in the April issue of In The Loop and in the May/June issue of Registered Nurse Journal.
RNAO's 90th Annual General Meeting
This Annual General Meeting (April 16-18, 2015) promises to be both informative and enjoyable for all members and student associates who attend; a wonderful opportunity to network with your peers.
The AGM is your chance to see your association at work for you. All RNs, NPs, and nursing students who are members of RNAO are invited to attend. Hear an overview of the year's achievements and help shape what priorities lie ahead. More than a dozen nurses from every facet of our health-care system will be recognized from those who work directly with patients, to nurses working in administration, as well as those working to shape the future of the nursing profession in education and research.
Chapters and regions
RNAO offers members the opportunity to become involved in their local executive, a network of professional resources and support. No two communities are alike, and each group carries out the mandate of the association while serving the interests of members within their specific communities. A chairperson or president from each chapter attends assembly meetings on behalf of local members.*
Members are assigned to a chapter or region based on geography. Exceptions can be made under certain circumstances. Visit chapters.RNAO.ca for a list of RNAO’s 35 chapters, their executive, and to access the chapter newsletter or calendar of events.
Members are encouraged to join one (or more) of RNAO’s 30 interest groups, which represent unique specialties or populations within nursing.** Interest group chairs represent members at assembly meetings, where they can more directly contribute to the work of the association.
Interest groups have their own websites with detailed information about the group. To find out more, visit RNAO.ca/connect/interest-groups
