NENA Alberta Members,

It is with a heavy heart that we need to announce the postponement of the NENA Alberta conference scheduled for October 15-16th in Calgary. The workload and staffing pressures faced by frontline emergency nurses are tremendous, and the uncertainty stemming from ongoing contract negotiations and evolving public health restrictions means that it is no longer reasonable to be planning a large gathering where participants will need to take time off from work. In light of this, the NENA Alberta executive has voted unanimously to cancel the 2021 conference.

We will be transitioning the AGM, and TNCC, and ENPC pre-conference education events to an online venue and offering full refunds to all conference registrants and partial refunds to those who registered for ENPC and TNCC.

We will be releasing the details of how the online AGM will be conducted and how registrants will access their ENPC and TNCC classes shortly.

We apologize for any inconvenience and will continue to support emergency nurses in any way possible through these demanding times.

Sincerely,

 

NENA AB executive
