Big Society =
A one-day conference
Friday 11th February 2011
The conference fee for non-members is £200 plus VAT. This includes conference packs, lunch and refreshments during the day. Also included in the price is a place on our preconference social event on Thursday evening, but this must be pre-booked on the conference booking form. ACoRP members and ‘Friends of ACoRP’ (subscribers) pay £160 plus VAT. We have a special reduced rate of £100 plus VAT for voluntary groups and students who are ‘Friends of ACoRP’ (contact us for details if you want to befriend us!)
We would like to extend special thanks to Southern whose generous support has enabled us to provide some bursary places for our members at £30 plus VAT. The usual conditions apply and all bursaries must be agreed in advance with ACoRP’s Events Organiser Hazel Bonner before making your booking (see below for details of how to book).
