Making your case to attend conference

To help you make your case to attend conference we've got a couple of example documents.  You can change and update them to suit your requirements for email/letter, making sure to add in how they support your objectives and professional development.  If you work in academia or a non-commercial organisation try this one word doc  and if you work in a commercial environment try this one  word doc.

Getting the most out of conference

There is lots going on at conference so how do you make the most of it?  We asked previous delegates what they thought - here's pdf what they said.

New Delegates

Not been to the BIALL Conference before or not attended for a few years?  We asked our previous first time delegates "What advice would you give your first time self?" and they very kindly gave some really useful suggestions - here's pdf what they said.

We are holding an Welcome Event for New and Overseas Delegates on Thursday 12th June - we would love to meet you.

Charity Raffle

This year we are supporting the Candlelighters. Candlelighters is a Yorkshire based charity formed and run by parents of children who have or have had cancer, ex-patients and the medical staff who treat them. Candlelighters provides essential services and support to children with cancer and their families.

Our annual Charity Raffle is very generously supported by our Exhibitors, Sponsors and Delegates alike.  As ever there will be some excellent prizes to be won, with all proceeds going to our chosen charity. Remember, you've got to be in it to win it so please do bring a few extra pounds!
