Get Involved: Volunteer as a Scrutineer

Although there are many opportunities to get involved in the AGM, there is an especially unique opportunity to lend a hand as an AGM scrutineer. Scrutineers are required to count votes at the AGM and play a key role in capturing accurate resolutions from the audience.

If you are interested in lending approximately 1.5 hours of your time on the morning of May 10, please email us by March 30. Previous experience attending the AGM as a voting delegate or a scrutineer is required. Scrutineers are provided with an accommodation and mileage subsidy to cover their required expenses.

Get Involved: Submit a Resolution

One way that CRNNS members can become involved in the AGM is by submitting a resolution to be presented to voting delegates at the AGM.

A resolution is a formal statement or expression of an opinion presented to the AGM voting delegates, consistent with the RN Act and within the jurisdiction of CRNNS.

Resolutions that are supported and passed by a majority of the voting delegates at the AGM are forwarded to the CRNNS Council for further action

To submit a resolution, complete the online form below by March 26.
