Member Briefing Days
A series of Member Briefing Days has been arranged to take place over the next twelve months. The dates on which they are to be held are shown below.
All four of the National Officers, together with the Professional Standards Co-ordinator, will be in attendance and will deliver a series of presentations on how the Association is structured; how it operates; the services it provides to its members and the role that it plays in the wider context of developing policing for the public good. It will also provide you with an opportunity to see the Association’s Headquarters at first hand; to network informally with colleagues from around the Country; as well as to meet in person with Wendy, Sue and Janet, who run National Office on a ‘day to day’ basis, and with whom you will come into contact when you either telephone or e mail the office. Previous Briefing Days have always been very well attended and much positive feedback has been received.
From the perspective of the four National Officers, we find events such as these extremely useful as they provide us with invaluable opportunities to learn at first hand those issues of importance to our newer members and to seek your views on current issues affecting policing. In the ongoing climate of police reform across a number of different fronts, never has this been more important.
Member Briefing Days will be held on the following dates:
- Thursday, 20th February 2014 at National Office in Pangbourne
- Wednesday 14th May 2014 at National Office in Pangbourne
- Thursday 25th September at New Scotland Yard
The programme on each of the dates will commence at 11.00hrs and conclude no later than 15.00hrs to allow for travelling. A buffet lunch will be provided.
If you would like to attend please contact Sue at email@example.com with your preferred date.
