Welcome to the Nurses' League
The 2021 AGM
At the May executive committee meeting it was decided not to hold our customary AGM and lunch in September 2021. Primarily, the uncertainty of future Covid regulations, could cause difficulties, if the event had to be cancelled at short notice. It was not an easy decision as we are aware that many people enjoy the event and would like to meet up.
Mindful of this and that last year we held a virtual AGM, which we were unable to open to the membership, we plan to hold the AGM in London this year, it will be a less formal affair that would be easier to cancel if the need arises, and there will be no cost for the event to members. The agenda, venue and timings for the day have yet to be confirmed but the date will definitely be Saturday 25th September, further information will be posted on the website, when confirmed. There may be a limit on the number of people who can attend. This will be reviewed nearer the time and again further information will be posted on the website. We are considering a number of venues, all near Great Ormond Street. We are also looking into the possibility of holding the League church service.
More details and confirmation of the day will be posted here on the website by the end of July at the latest.
The 2020 AGM
Notes on the 2020 AGM are available in the Members Only Area.
A request for your thoughts/ideas on what makes a paediatric nurse special
At our chapel service before the 2019 reunion and AGM, our chaplain, Jim Linthicum, gave us a project! He would like to hear our ideas about what makes a paediatric nurse so special, and also any thoughts about the special qualities we need.
We currently have some vacancies for Link Members notably in Kent and Berkshire. Link members keep in touch with League members in their county, hold coffee mornings and advise re applications to the benevolent fund. For any more information please contact the Membership Secretary.
