A big thank you to everyone who attended our 2019 President’s Conference on 18-19 June.

The event was hugely informative, thought-provoking, inspiring and successful. Boasting an outstanding line-up of speakers and a packed programme of interactive workshops, the occasion also saw Nicola Graham bestow her presidential chain upon the capable shoulders of her successor Sandra Taylor. We were also delighted to announce the appointment of Alison Hughes as Socitm Vice President.
