RCN Congress and the Research Society

Congress is the RCN's main annual debating forum, held in April/May each year. It plays a major part in shaping the RCN's future policy through the resolutions the members vote on and matters discussed. 

Influencing policy

Each year RCN branches, forums etc. are invited to submit resolutions and raise matters for discussion via the RCN Agenda Committee. The deadline for this is around October-November each year.  

Fringe activities

The Research Society has a varied fringe programme each year at Congress.
