For the second year in a row, each and every RNAO member will have the chance to shape the future of our professional association through the One Member, One Vote system.

Voting opens April 15, and will take place online. Members can cast their vote on an important governance issue regarding RNAO fees, new members of RNAO's board of directors and board committees, an amendment to bylaws regarding members calling special meetings, and the approval of RNAO auditors for the fiscal year end 2014. Leading up to the vote, we will be holding a series of informational webinars to ensure members are informed and empowered.

RNAO's board of directors recently passed a resolution which calls for the association's fee to decrease, given that CNA fees will become voluntary and charged on top of the RNAO fee starting in November 2014. RNAO members are being asked to approve the RNAO fee decrease. You can read the resolution here, and get more information by signing up for the following webinars:

Members will also have a chance to meet their board of directors and committee nominees, and ask them questions in three webinars chaired by former RNAO president, David McNeil. These webinars will be held as follows:
