The aim of the Conference is to discuss and agree the future direction of the union. The union is at a vital point in its development and is entering unchartered waters. It is crucial that we all are aware of what lies before us and have broad agreement on the path we want to take.

As this affects all members, participation needs to be as wide as possible. Whilst it is not expected that every member will be able to attend it is important that every member has taken part in discussions via their branch and that every branch is represented.

The conference will take place at:


The School of Oriental and African Studies
Thornhaugh Street
Russell Square
WC1H 0XG London
United Kingdom
