ASC NATIONAL CONFERENCE 2012 TO BE HELD IN SOUTH WEST DISTRICT – IN CARDIFF

Among the bustle of Conference 2011 in Edinburgh, the fiercely fought competitions, the energetic AGM and the glamour of the Gala Dinner, there was an oasis of calm. At the side of the conference hall, but by no means side-lined was the stall promoting next year’s conference – in Cardiff.

Bristling with all things Welsh – a vase of daffodils, leeks, pamphlets about Cardiff and the wider Welsh countryside, and not least, copious quantities of splendid Welsh Cakes! Like a magnet, conference delegates were drawn to this display and many of them signed up to receive further information about next year’s conference.

Plans are well under way – the venue will be The Marriott Hotel in the heart of the city of Cardiff, just 3 minutes walk from the station (honestly!). Workshops are being planned and our Conference Convenor (Helena Dyer) has promised that this year there will be dancing! For spouses, partners, friends the whole of the City of Cardiff spreads out before them once walking out of the hotel. The Castle is just 10minutes walk away and a fantastic shopping experience for your indulgence lies just across the pedestrianised road!

Make a note of the date now – 27th-29th April 2012 – keep up to date with newsletters and add your name to the list of recipients by contacting our Conference Convenor on helena.dyer@googlemail.com

You can be sure of a warm welcome to South Wales.
