ARNBC Extraordinary Meeting
The Association of Registered Nurses of BC (ARNBC) will be hosting an extraordinary general meeting on February 26, 2015, to amend some inconsistencies that have been identified during a routine review of our bylaws. As a relatively new organization, we are grateful to have had this opportunity to modernize our bylaws in a way that will enable electronic voting, allowing for all registered nurses and nurse practitioners, no matter where they are in the province, to have equal opportunity to vote. Nurses have told us that they would welcome this broader use of technology as a way to hear from every nurse in the province.
