PDC Membership Poll
Following on from the motion at the AGM in October 2022 regarding PDC membership of the Association only 2 of the 4 PDCs in post are currently members Do you agree that either ALL PDCs are members of the Association or NONE are members. Should we adopt an “all in or none in policy?
It was discussed at previous NEC REPs meetings that the Association should adopt a policy that all PDC’s be members of the Association, or none be members.
It was collectively agreed that the PDCs are valuable in providing education and information for our GPN role, but removing them as IGPNEA members, should not have any repercussions as their role is a HSE role and they provide the same information and education to IGPNEA and non IGPNEA members.
The PDCs will still have full access to write in and update members via our journal.
No one will miss out on information from the PDCs. The Association will continue to lobby for the filling of vacant PDC posts where they are viewed as invaluable to support GPNs and that areas without a current PDC are discriminated against.
All members of the Association have the opportunity to determine how we proceed.
This poll will run from today (Thursday 18th May) to Thursday 25th May to vote on the matter.
The results of the poll will be discussed at the EGM on the 29th May.
