The Nominating Committee will review all applications and the final selection of candidates is at the discretion of the CAFCN Nominating Committee and approved by the Executive Committee.

CAFCN Logo’d Gear and Goodies!
For the first time, we have CAFCN logo’d items for sale at the conference!
Order and pay online and pick up your items at the conference.
Not able to make it to the conference? Not necessarily a problem! Although all items must be picked up at the conference, you can pre-order online and make arranagements with friend to bring home your goodies.
We anticipate showcasing more than 20 exhibitors and attracting approximately 150 foot care nurses from both Canada and the US. As a participant, you will have an opportunity to enjoy the presentations, and connect directly with those who use your products or information on a daily basis. Having suppliers of foot care products and information at the conference has always been a draw for our delegates.
