POSTPONED: Cancer Nurses College Biennial General Meeting
Hello CNC members
Due to the extraordinary circumstances the health sector is facing, the CNC Committee has decided to postpone tomorrow’s (Friday, 29 January 2022) BGM. With mitigating factors arising this week it is not in the Cancer Nurses’ best interest to hold the BGM now.
The committee will meet next week on Zoom to discuss options and potential dates to hold the BGM and then let CNC members know for their own planning purposes.
Of course, the spot prizes will still be on offer when the BGM is held!
Stay safe, stay well.
Best wishes
The CNC Committee
