RNAO encourages members, chapters, regions without chapters, and interest groups to submit resolutions for review and discussion at RNAO’s annual general meeting (AGM). Members who submit resolutions help raise the profile of important nursing and health issues and engage colleagues in discussions that matter to RNs, NPs and nursing students.
Call for resolutions
Resolutions can be submitted throughout the year up to 5 p.m. (ET) on the Monday of the 17th week immediately preceding the week in which RNAO’s AGM is held.
Review of resolutions
All resolutions are reviewed by the Provincial Resolutions Committee to ensure they meet guidelines. The committee will provide comments to submitters regarding any key issues or concerns related to a resolution. The committee will prepare a report to be circulated to RNAO’S board of directors and members of the association at least four weeks before the date of the AGM.
Presentation at AGM
Submitters present their resolutions for consideration at the AGM to consultation representatives from each provincial interest group and chapter/regions without chapters. Consultation representatives review and vote for the resolutions to be worked on for the upcoming year.
RNAO staff collaborate with resolution submitters to work on carried resolutions and provide a report at the next AGM.
