2016 NLMA President's Tour: MOA at the Crossroads


The President's Tour provides NLMA members throughout the province with an opportunity to:

 

  • Meet their current NLMA President as well as the Executive Director of the Association;
  • Discuss the current state of implementation of the 2013-2017 MOA and look ahead to the next MOA negotiations;
  • Receive an update on other important issues and what the Association will be working on in the future;
  • Identify their own local questions or concerns; and,
  • Network with colleagues and friends practicing in the same area.


This year, the President’s Tour will include visits to community clinics and hospitals in smaller communities in an effort to meet more members in person. All members are strongly encouraged to attend this annual opportunity to actively participate in the work of the NLMA.

 

All dates and communities are listed below with some meeting locations to be confirmed.
