Last night I attended the first meeting in relation to the working life conference we hope to hold next year. Karen Allen has pulled together a team with old and new faces to help pull off an even more successful conference than last year. I will be helping out, and attending some of the meetings, but Karen will be leading the project. Details of date and venue will be released in the new year.
We are also working hard to ensure that the student life conference is equally successful and are currently looking to pull a team together for that. If you are interested in getting involved on that please drop me an e-mail.
Speaking of events... Manchester is having its first working life event organised by the lovely Claire McLoughlin, in conjunction with Karen. The event is being held on Monday 15th January at Atlas Bar, 376 Deansgate, Manchester, M3 4LY, 7pm-9pm.
If you would like to confirm you attendance or require further details please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
With numbers signing up to CF branches in our universities increasing, it is vital that there is a vibrant working life CF branch to keep our members on graduation, and for those who choose (quite sensibly with all this student debt nowadays) to go straight into the workplace.
