There are two Council committees which assist Council with policy development, covering the trade union and professional sides of the college. Both committees are made up of Council members.
There are also four Council subcommittees, which assist Council with policy development and carry out work delegated by Council. Members of the Diversity, Ethics and International Committees are appointed by Council based on their experience and skills. The Agenda Committee is elected by voting members at RCN Congress.
There are four governance committees to assist Council with particular responsibilities. Each committee is made up of Council members and external advisers who bring professional expertise.
These groups advise MRC and NPPC about the governance of the RCN’s representative committees. The membership varies from group to group to meet their individual needs.
