Congress 50

In 2017 we’re celebrating 50 years of Congress.

In 1967, the RCN Representative Body (RRB) was established as the RCN’s new debating forum, holding a two-day meeting in November. It attracted 287 voting members and 100 observers.

Renamed as Congress in 1987, the event now runs over five days, has a total of 666 voting members and is attended by more than 4,000 delegates.

This year we’ll be proudly marking our milestone year with an exhibition, selfie corner, events, a 60s themed social event and more.
