  1. Consider and sanction alterations to the rules and policies.
  2. Discuss professional issues via scientific paper presentations.
  3. Elect the National Executive Committee for the forthcoming 4-year term.

This conference serves as a platform for enhancing professional standards and charting the course for ZUNO’s future.
