Submit a Congress emergency agenda item

Please complete this form to submit an emergency agenda item for Congress. You can submit the form from now right up until Congress finishes on Thursday 6 June 2024.

Congress agenda items can be submitted by RCN branch and forum committees, country and regional boards, the Student and Nursing Support Workers Committees, and the UK Stewards, Learning Representatives and Safety Representative Committees. RCN Council, Professional Nursing and Trade Union Committees may also submit Congress agenda items.

Any emergency items submitted before Congress will be considered by the Agenda Committee at their meeting immediately before Congress. The Agenda Committee meets twice daily during Congress to consider emergency items.

An emergency agenda item must be on an issue or topic which has arisen since the closing date for agenda items, which was Friday 5 January 2024.

The RCN is your organisation - this is your opportunity to have your say in setting its agenda.
