PNIG AGM and Education Day: A First

October 2nd, 2010, our 9th AGM with a difference

For the first time our AGM took place outside of Toronto, and not in conjunction with RNAO's AGM usually held in April. This new format made it possible to plan a day-long event. Our 9th AGM was held in the morning with an education component in the afternoon. These changes resulted in a successful day with a record in attendance.
