NOTICE: Events and Speaking Engagements
CNPS Events during COVID-19 (2022)
Please note that for the time being, the CNPS will be accepting a limited number of requests for digital presentations and will not be accepting in-person speaking requests. If you are interested in a CNPS digital presentation, please complete our event request form. We will review your request and respond to you as soon as possible.
When the request for a commitment to speak live comes from the nurses, CNPS will generally cover the costs incurred for a lawyer from CNPS to attend the event. The reservation of the place and all associated costs are the responsibility of the applicant.
When planning a live engagement, the applicant must generally commit to a minimum of 50 CNPS participants. CNPS retains the discretion to consider extenuating circumstances and may agree to make a live presentation to less than 50 beneficiary participants.
When the request for a live presentation comes from a health facility, including a health region, the requester will generally assume the costs incurred for the presentation.
The deadline for confirmation is 3 weeks before the date of presentation if air transportation is required by the CNPS and 2 weeks before the date if other forms of travel are used. If the speaking engagement is canceled by the requester, CNPS may impose cancellation fees to recover its incurred expenses.
Webcasts or teleconferences
The cost of CNPS webcasts and conference calls is generally borne by CNPS if webcasting or teleconferencing is done using products and services owned or licensed by CNPS. If an applicant wishes to use their own products and services for webcasting or teleconferencing and there is a cost associated with this, the applicant will generally assume the cost.
