A panel made up of the Chair and Vice Chair of Congress as well as the Chairs of the Forum Governance Group, Trade Union Governance Group, and the Health Practitioners Committee will make the final selection for the Congress 2017 fringe programme.
They will review each submission and make their selection based on whether or not:

|Wednesday 17 May||not available||not available|
Fringe events can be in a range of formats. For example:
You may wish to consider running a Partnership event which may feature external (ie non-RCN) organisations but these must be led by the RCN, should focus on the partnership and must not be a showcase for third-party products or services.
There is no charge to host a Fringe event, with the exception of third-party led sponsored educational seminars – see below.
Please note that if you wish to tailor your event beyond the standard AV package*, all approvals and associated costs, logistics, and contractual arrangements are the responsibility of the submitting body. Please email Congress@rcn.org.uk if you have any specific questions.
Organisations wishing to host an event should make an application via the Corporate Relations team. These events will be promoted as sponsored educational events and a fee will be charged. To discuss the options for sponsored educational events please contact Julie Ballard on 020 7647 3940 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
* The standard AV package consists of a laptop, projector and screen. Some larger rooms will have microphones. A full outline of your included AV will be listed in your event confirmation notification. Please email Congress@rcn.org.uk if you have any specific questions.
