NALM AGM and Conference

Interesting conference coming up!


NALM AGM and Conference will be held on April 2nd 2009

Woburn House, near Euston Station in London

We are delighted to announce that the first NALM AGM and Conference will be held on April 2nd 2009. We hope very much you will be there to support and build NALM. All members are welcome and the conference is free to members. The conference will formally and democratically develop the process of building a national 'grassroots' voice for LINKs’ and help to develop ways for all LINks and LINks’ members to communicate with each other and with regional and national policy makers. We want to stimulate new and more powerful approaches to public and user involvement. We want to build NALM into a major grass roots body of LINks that can significant influence government policy at national and regional levels. The conference will give us an opportunity to promote diversity amongst the membership of LINKs and build our collaboration with National Voices and other national organisations. Please sign up for the Conference; raise the Conference with your LINk and ensure that you put in a bid to your host for funds to cover your fares to London and any other expenses.

Malcolm Alexander, Chair
