Regional representatives to be elected in December

BCNU is proud to support four human rights and equity (HRE) caucuses as we strive to make our union a safe and welcoming place for all. There are four HRE caucuses: the Indigenous Leadership Circle, LGBTQ Caucus, Mosaic of Colour Caucus and Workers with Disabilities Caucus. In addition, BCNU supports two networks: Men in Nursing and the Young Nurses' Network.

Each of the caucuses and networks will hold elections for regional representatives. These positions will be elected across all 16 BCNU regions. The term of service is Jan.1, 2024 to Dec. 31, 2026.
