Event description

Description

The 2019 CWA annual conference and AGM will be held at Chatelherault Country Park, Hamilton, South Lanarkshire. This is a beautiful venue with limited space so places are restricted to two per member group.

The Conference schedule is below. Information on transport and accommodation is available from the CWA website www.communitywoods.org

You will need to book your own accommodation. As in previous years we anticipate being able to support T&S costs for delegates from member groups, although we are not able to commit to fully meet all costs.

The conference will incorporate the CWA Annual General Meeting: AGM papers, including Director nomination and proxy voting forms, which have been sent out to groups. If your group has not received these papers, or if you have any questions about any aspect of the conference please contact Jon Hollingdale jon@communitywoods.org
