Do you want to get more involved with CCCN and participate in its governance? Why not join a local or national committee? This is a great way to learn about the Council and a great stepping stone for serving on the Board of Directors.

The benefits also include hours toward your certification and continuing competency. These activities and positions held can also be included on your CV. For more information and to join a committee please contact Jackie Murray, Membership Chair at jackie.murray@fraserhealth.ca or your Provincial Chair.

Standards Review
We are looking for volunteers to work on revising the CCCN Standards. If you are interested, please contact Rody Pike at Rodolfo.Pike@easternhealth.ca.

Writers needed
Have you thought about publishing something during your career? Why not try by starting small in a non-threatening way. We need authors to write the "Did You Know....?" column in each issue of the CJCN.

This column is intended to be a brief snapshot of new research findings and how they may relate to clinical practice. The length can be just a paragraph. This is not a peer reviewed column. The Editor will edit it. If you are interested, please contact Paula Price at pprice@mtroyal.ca.
