We will be covering key policy areas including value for money, UK research strategy and Equality and Diversity. Also included are a series of personal development workshops on resilience, communication, leadership across the institution and a special session for smaller institutions. Delegates will stay in the brand new Conference Hotel on the University’s Edgbaston campus. Dinner on Monday evening will be held on campus with a reception at the prestigious Barber Institute of Fine Arts, giving ample time for networking and an opportunity to view some of the Institute’s finest pieces. The Gala Dinner will take place at Hagley Hall, a stunning 18th century estate, where we will be entertained in a ‘Shakespearean’ manner! AHUA’s conferences are an excellent opportunity not only to hear from expert and knowledgeable speakers, but also to meet up with old friends and make new contacts. Conferences attract approximately half our membership, with members coming from all over the country and from many different types of institution. The Early Bird fee (available until 31 January) for the conference, dinners and two nights’ accommodation is just £390 + VAT which we’re able to offer thanks to the generosity of our conference sponsors. The fee increases to £450 + VAT after 31 January.
