One Member One Vote
RNAO members play an important role in deciding governance issues that affect the current and future direction of your professional association. This year, members are asked to cast their vote on three items including amendments to regional boundaries, the appointment of Auditors for the 2020 year-end, and the election of candidates on the 2020 ticket of nominations.
Voting opens on May 26th at noon and closes on June 11 at noon (ET). Results will be announced at the annual general meeting on June 12, 2020.
Another key feature of this event is the consultation session on the proposed resolutions brought forward by members. Consultation Representatives from RNAO’s chapters/regions without chapters and interest groups will have the opportunity to vote on whether they endorse the proposed resolutions or not.
This year's proposed resolutions can be found here.
