RCN AGM moves to London
Published: 27 July 2009
The RCN's Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2009 has been moved to London. The AGM was due to be held in Edinburgh but RCN Council took the decision to move the venue due to concerns surrounding members' availability during the swine flu pandemic.
The Scottish Government Health Department may consider cancelling annual leave for essential health staff during the Influenza A (H1N1) outbreak, and this means that a quorate AGM could be difficult to achieve. The RCN has a number of important decisions for members to discuss and vote on and the RCN is making every effort to have a quorate meeting. RCN Council emphasises that the relocation was driven by logistical issues and the question of transmission of influenza A (H1N1) was not a consideration.
RCN members have the opportunity to vote using a postal ballot, whether or not they attend the AGM in person. Details of the arrangements for the postal ballot will be available in late summer.
