The committee’s role is to bring members’ perspective to the NZNO board, and undertake projects on behalf of the board.
The committee is comprised of:
- One representative elected from each regional council;
- Two representatives from the National Student Unit;
- Two representatives from national colleges and sections;
- The president and vice president.
We usually meet face-to-face at least twice a year, as well as through video or tele-conferences at least monthly.
Members provide an “environmental scan” from the group they represent – basically a report of any matters of concern or national interest to nurses, such as violence against nurses and health workers, multi-employer collective agreement updates or requests for consultation.
Brent Doncliff is the NZNO membership committee college & section representative (mental health nurses section).
