On Saturday June 7th the Durham/Northumberland Chapter participated in the Community Care Durham 9th Annual "Walk for Mental Health Awareness". Not only did the chapter participate in a great community event but was also able to sponsor one of the three water stations as shown by Betsy and Kim. A big thank you to all the chapter members, families and pets who participated. It was a great event filled with fun, sun, laughs and a few blisters!
The Durham Northumberland Chapter Executive is requiring 2 volunteers to join our executive team beginning in September this year!
The first position is the Finance/Treasury Executive Network Officer (ENO). The Finance/Treasury ENOs maintains the bookkeeping and financial records of the chapter and makes them available to chapter executive and RNAO home office.
The chapter members met with their MPPs over breakfast at the Legislative Building in Queen’s Park on February 27, 2014, speaking out on four issues: Signing of the Health Accord; Restructuring of the Local Health Integration Network to include public health units, home care and primary care; Increasing the Minimum Wage to $14.00/ hour; and Investment in Registered Nurses.
Great turn out at our Annual Dinner Chapter Meeting at Harpo’s in Oshawa. Over 60 members signed up for this event. Please see attachment for the ENO report and more pictures!
