The RCN Agenda Committee

The RCN Agenda Committee oversees the planning and organisation of RCN Congress. In the run up to Congress, the committee meets to consider agenda submissions from RCN branches, forums and committees. In deciding the final agenda, the committee shapes the future work of RCN Council, and brings nursing and health issues to the attention of the public across the UK and beyond.

At Congress itself, the committee has a vital dual role. As well as acting as the link between delegates and the Congress Chair and Vice Chair, the Agenda Committee meets twice daily to consider emergency agenda items.
