CWA Conference 2019

28th September - 29th September
Booking is now open for the 2019 CWA conference which will be held at Chatelherault Country Park, South Lanarkshire on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 September.
The conference schedule is below. Information on transport and accommodation is available in the attached file below. 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 meet all costs. The conference will incorporate the CWA Annual General Meeting: AGM papers, including Director nomination and proxy voting forms, were sent out at the end of July.
