Board of Directors
The National Police Federation recognizes that members of the RCMP need a collective national voice. We want to be that voice and below you can read further about the interim board of directors that are driving the NPF to certification as your bargaining agent. We have only just begun and commit to you that once certified, there will be an inaugural meeting of all members to elect a permanent board of directors.
The time to organize is now!
