Inspire change in nursing and health care: Submit your resolution by Dec. 18

To add your voice to nursing, health and health-care issues, RNAO is encouraging individual members, chapters, regions without chapters and interest groups to submit resolutions for review and discussion at the 2018 AGM.

Please send resolutions along with a one-page backgrounder to Sarah Pendlebury, board affairs co-ordinator, at spendlebury@RNAO.ca no later than Dec. 18 at 5 p.m. EST.

When submitting a resolution, please note the following:

  • Resolutions must bear the signature(s) of RNAO member(s) in good standing.
  • Resolutions submitted on a chapter or interest groups behalf must have been provided to their members for consultation and a formal vote. RNAO home office can assist with the voting process.
  • A backgrounder (one-page maximum) must accompany each resolution. This single page will include any references. The font used must be no smaller than Arial 10 or Times New Roman 11. Margins must also be reasonable (an absolute minimum of 0.7 all around).
  • All resolutions will be reviewed by the provincial resolutions committee.
  • For clarity of purpose and precision in the wording of your resolution, we recommend it include no more than three ‘Whereas’; and preferably only one, but never more than two, ‘Therefore be it resolved that…’

Among last year’s resolutions were calls to provide more funding for transportation services for seniors; establish a rural, remote and/or northern education initiative; and promote population health and improve growing health inequalities.

To learn more about submitting resolutions, please read our guidelines and our resolutions feature in the July/August 2014 issue of the Registered Nurse Journal or contact Board Affairs Co-ordinator Sarah Pendlebury.
