I am currently on the South East Regional Board; this has given me experience of the governance role. I believe I can expand on this role by being on Council. I believe I, along with all Council, can give you, the members a voice. Your voice needs to be heard! We need to communicate!
In previous years the RCN has not communicated in an effective manner with its members. I want to change this. As a Council member my goal is to link with committees, boards, branches and members. I am willing to visit members in person, at branch meetings and workplaces to listen, and engage, with members to listen to their concerns. I will take these concerns to Council and communicate the response back to members. Being responsive is key as it shows the members that Council is listening.
I believe members should be able to attend meetings, not only to observe, but to offer input; this will give a member’s perspective to Council. Meetings are to be transparent, open and honest. I believe by engaging with the members gives them a louder voice.
Be heard, be supportive, have HOPE together, you are NOT alone.
