Regional board

The Yorkshire and the Humber board works to advance the work of the RCN in this region in accordance with the aims and objectives of the RCN as set out in our Charter.

The board meets three times a year and its meetings include an open session which all Yorkshire and Humber region members are welcome to attend as an observer. During 2021 there are no physical meetings but digital meetings are still taking place. The next meeting will take place on Friday 24 September 2021.  

More details about meetings and events can be found on the RCN Yorkshire and Humber Facebook page.
