CNO SIG AGM and Annual Planning meeting 2020

The CNO SIG is planning to hold their AGM and Annual Planning Meeting by Zoom meeting on Saturday 23 May from 10.00 to 11.30 a.m.  

We would like to invite all those who are currently members of the CNO SIG, as well as anyone who might be interested in learning more about the CNO SIG, to join the Zoom meeting (see details below). 

If there are issues that you would like to discuss at this meeting, please e-mail Maxine with details for adding to the agenda. Copies of the previous AGM and the agenda will be e-mailed out a few days before the meeting. 

During the meeting, we will also be required to vote for positions on the CNO SIG committee.  All members of the current committee are happy to continue, but we would welcome others to join, particularly those with an interest in compounding or nutrition, to strengthen our ability to meet the needs of members working in these specialty areas.  If you are interested in learning more about the role of committee members, please contact Maxine or Cath to discuss.
