Last chance for IAFN Board and CFNC Elections
Today is the last chance for a few good forensic nurses to run for the open positions on the board — President Elect, Treasurer, Member at Large and for the Nominating Committee which is not a board position but a great way to become involved. The other open position is the CFNC position. This year, we are electing a non-SANE member. We are also looking for an international member. It would be fantastic if we had a nominee who filled both roles. The Call for Nominations closes tonight, July 17 at midnight! Please consider running.
