The majority of our events are open to both members and non-members, though non-members usually need to pay a fee.
We continue to hold many of our events virtually, as this means we can engage with members both in the UK and abroad, as well as those with disabilities, those with caring responsibilities, and those for whom the costs of travel may be prohibitive. This is also in line with our environmental commitment, reducing the amount of travel required to bring colleagues together from around the world. We look forward to seeing you!
If you want to find out more about our previous events you can view a list or search by working group via our past events page. If you've missed one of our events you can find some of them on our YouTube channel.
