We are very pleased to announce the programme and venue for our 2018 AGM and Members Day which will take place on 9 June. The full day event will take place at St Mary's University in Twickenham.
As usual the day will start with the AGM and trustee elections, followed by a talk on Fatigue Research, funded by NASS, by Dr Kirstie Haywood and Nathan Pearson. We will then have workshops on Managing Fatigue run by Clare Clarke, Occupational Therapist and Coping with Anxiety, run by Anxiety UK.
We also have a new feature this year called 'Exploring AS' as suggested by those who attended our 2017 event in Sheffield. 'Exploring AS' will discuss in detail AS and how to best manage it. We are pleased to announce that this session will be run by NASS trustees Dr Andrew Keat and Claire Harris along with a member of the NASS team. It is an ideal session for those who have just been diagnosed, have not spoken in depth about their condition or would like an update in the latest in diagnosis and treatment.
The afternoon session will be a warm-up of Chi Walking followed by Walking Football. The Friends and Family session also makes a come-back in 2018, and as always we will be offering our 'Chat to an Expert' slots - 15 minutes with a healthcare professional to speak about a specific problem - on a first come first served basis on the day.
Please complete the form below and then pay your deposit (s) online via the NASS shop, by calling Jill on 07875 107 747 (email email@example.com to arrange a call back) or by sending a cheque to NASS, 172 King Street, Hammersmith, London W6 0QU. The deposit is £10 per person and will be refunded following attendance at the event.
Members Day is open to fully paid up members plus one guest. We do only have a limited number of spaces so book early to avoid disappointment. Being a member of NASS does not guarantee a place and booking is mandatory.
