2009 CHNC AGM Report
from Claire Betker, outgoing president of CHNC highlights some of the activities that are occurring on the national level.

New members are needed for 4 CHNC national committees
. The time commitments vary - most involve a meeting (1-800 number provided) once a month to every 3 months. As well, there is committee project work usually involving reading of reports and providing feedback or working on an initiative. It is a great opportunity to work with other Community Health Nurses across the country. CHNC would love to have representatives from Alberta. Please let chnalberta@shaw.ca know if you are interested in working on any of these committees.
