Event Details

Date: 17th March 2015 (11.30 – 17.30)


Venue: The Lift, 45 White Lion St, Islington, London N1 9PW (Angel Underground Station is 5 minutes’ walk)


Cost: Free, but with a small optional charge of £12 (£10 +VAT) to cover lunch.


A national networking event aimed at AD:UK members from the South of England (SW, SE, London and Eastern Regions).


Following feedback from various members at the conference and other events, many members would appreciate more time to meet colleagues from outside their immediate working environment. ADUK are embarking on a new national initiative to support networking within our membership by hosting two Mass Regional meetings for England, one north, one south. The date for the first of these meetings will be on Tuesday 17 March at Lift in Islington for the southern half of England.


These follow-on from the already successful All-Wales ADUK Cymru meetings that are now part of our annual programme. The Mass Regional Meeting will include a panel debate and discussion forum before we break into our usual regional groups with your regional coordinators, finishing up with an opportunity for you to catch up with your colleagues and informally network before we all get trains home.


The meeting will be free for members to attend, but there will be a small surcharge of £10.00 (+ VAT = £12), for lunch and refreshments. So please get the date in your diary and let's start the year off together.


Booking forms for the Southern Regions Mass Meeting is available below (where you can pay for the lunch surcharge directly by credit card). It you do not require lunch, a Word version of the booking form is available through AD:UK at please eat prior to the event as the venue does not allow other food to be taken into the premises).

Information about the Northern Networking meeting (for members in the EM, WM, NW, NE and Yorkshire Regions) will follow shortly in the AD:UK ezine, so watch this space and reserve the 17th March in your diary now!
