UPDATE: Due to unforeseen state business, Gov. Pat McCrory has informed us that he will no longer be able to speak at the North Carolina Nurses Association’s (NCNA) 2016 Annual Convention in Winston-Salem this week. McCrory had previously been scheduled to address the convention during our Membership Forum on Wednesday, September 28. He is now planning to submit a video message that we will play for attendees, instead.
Attorney General Roy Cooper's plans have not changed, and we are still expecting him to speak during our Healthcare Town Hall at 3:15 pm on Thursday, September 29 in North Main Hall A.

WINSTON-SALEM -- Both North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory and his general election opponent, Attorney General Roy Cooper, will be speaking at the North Carolina Nurses Association’s (NCNA) 2016 Annual Convention next week in Winston-Salem. With this being an election year, NCNA is excited to have both candidates for the highest office in the state discussing their plans for healthcare and nursing with our members and guests.
Media is invited to cover this event, however we cannot guarantee that either candidate will be available for interviews.
Several other candidates have been invited to participate in Thursday's Healthcare Town Hall, including Sen. Richard Burr and his challenger, Deborah Ross. Two NCNA members running for state office, incumbent Rep. Gale Adcock and House District 26 candidate Donna White, have already confirmed their participation.
