Provincial Council is mandated by the Health Professions Act to develop and oversee implementing policies that direct CARNA in meeting its responsibilities.
Council adheres to the principles of policy governance. View the CARNA Governance Policies to find out more.
Council consists of 18 members, including 13 elected registered nurses (president, president-elect and 11 councillors) and five public representatives appointed by the Alberta Minister of Health.
All CARNA members and members of the public are welcome to attend Provincial Council meetings. During the meeting we offer open forum sessions which are the opportunity for observers to ask questions of council or staff, raise issues for future consideration by council, and comment on current issues or experiences or provide feedback on the meeting. Council meeting agendas will be posted three weeks prior to each meeting.
