NNPBC Councils

Each of the four Councils will play an important role in supporting, advocating and setting strategic policy direction for their designations.

About the Councils

  • Councils will consist of elected representatives from their relevant designations who will administer a budget (to be used primarily to bring the Councils together for face to face meetings) and have autonomy over how many elected representatives sit on the council and which regions/areas they represent.
  • Each spring, Councils will be elected by members of the appropriate designation via online voting.
  • Each Council will reserve one Council position for an indigenous nurse representing that designation. On a rotating basis, these indigenous nurses will serve on the NNPBC Board.
  • Each Council will appoint two elected individuals to sit on the NNPBC Board.
  • Councils will meet regularly to review, identify and discuss practice and policy issues that impact their designation, and will bring these issues to the NNPBC Board.
  • The four Councils will communicate and work with each other on a routine basis around shared issues, opportunities and programs and services through the NNPBC Board of Directors and staff.
  • Each Council will also serve as the spokesgroup for any media or advocacy issues related to their designation, ensuring that the appropriate designation speaks to issues as they arise.
