To Our Readers – October 27

Thank you for reading our blog. We regularly scour the web to find interesting links so you don’t have to. We hate to disappoint you but, between now and the end of the year, we’ll be cutting back to two posts every week. COVID-19 updates on Fridays and other news on Wednesdays. You can also catch up on some of our past posts by visiting our Homepage.


Conference is just around the corner and we’re doing all we can to make it just as engaging as always. Be prepared for a few surprises – including the registration!  Live sessions will take place between 30th November and 4th December but we’ll start uploading pre-recorded sessions to ActuView from the week before. All members received ActuView codes several months ago. If you’ve mislaid yours let us know and we’ll resend it.


More details on our 30th Annual Conference coming soon!
