As one of the 10 sponsoring societies, the Society is pleased to confirm that a virtual conference will be taking place on 28 November. We lost our chance of this annual get-together in March because of the pandemic but all of the themes we planned to cover will be included in this -line event. The steering committee has sent out the statement below and most ticket holders should by now have been notified of this event:
“We know that many members of our potential audience will have been using Zoom for the last 6 months, to keep in touch with work, family and friends and, while we know some will not wish to take part by this medium, we hope that the majority of ticket-holders will do so.
By providing most of the original programme on a single day we hope that it will still feel like an “event” even though participants will be at home. We will begin with an introduction to the way we will run the day and then offer the programme as one-and-a-half-hour elements with half-hour breaks for coffee, lunch and tea in between. The zoom meeting will not be closed down during these breaks and participants may wish to talk amongst themselves in these periods! We will start at 9.45am and aim to finish at about 3.45pm. There will be scope for questions after each talk.
Ticket holders who wish to join the Zoom conference should email the Secretary to the Conference, Elizabeth Velluet, on firstname.lastname@example.org. They will then be added to the list of bookings and notified of the Zoom link, together with the revised programme, shortly before the event. There is a limited number of places, so if you book a place then find you cannot attend, please let us know in case we have a waiting list.
Ticket holders who do not wish to join on 28th should return their ticket, together with their name and address, to West London Conference 31B Brook Road South, Brentford, Middlesex TW8 0NN with a stamped self-addressed envelope, so that a refund can be arranged.”
