I am thinking that next year I would like to run a session on some work we are doing, how do I go about this?
The first thing is to contact your regional commissioning group if you have one, or the regional rep on the conference organising group, or failing that email Paul@ncctc.co.uk. If your session fits within the theme and is chosen you will get two free places at the event. We are here to help as the sharing of your work is key to the success of this event.
I would like to attend more than one workshop in the session, can I access the information for the one I miss?
After the event, we post most of the slides from the workshops on this website and you can download them free of charge.

The regional reps are key to the success of the event. The job involves promoting the event to your region, asking for workshops, and chasing for the information. We have two meetings, both held just off the M5 south of Birmingham in Droitwich, and ideally we would like you to attend both but a least one. As the regional rep you get a free place at the event!
