AGM Voting Delegates

Print this page

Part of the Annual General Meeting is the ability for CRNNS members to engage with our organization and vote on matters that matter to them and the public. This role is fundamental to self-regulation and helps keep members involved in how the profession is regulated in the best interest of the public.

Year after year, our body of voting delegates continues to grow, which demonstrates the interest and engagement nurses have in their profession. We look forward to seeing those numbers rise once again this year and we look forward to spending our meeting with you.

Voting delegates must register online by May 4, 2017 in order to be eligible for a subsidy. To register as a voting delegate, please click here. If you have a question, please contact us at

As a voting delegate, you have access to the following benefits, including:

  • Travel subsidy for members who live outside of the Halifax area, on a first-come, first-serve basis. This includes one night accommodation and vehicle mileage for a return trip to the Best Western in Dartmouth.
  • A complimentary CRNNS Awards Banquet ticket, held on the evening on May 11.
