Please join the AHS group if you’re coming along
The AHS is extremely proud to officially announce the societies training weekend! In Nottingham on Saturday 6th December we will be holding a day full of workshops, talks and discussions aimed at improving the skills of society representatives like yourselves, and giving you the chance to meet those involved in other societies face to face and socialise to your heart’s content!
Any AHS society committee member is eligible to attend, as are members of AHS societies with aspirations to join the committee in future years. Travel to the event is subsidised so this really is a fantastic opportunity both for you to learn more about how to run a successful society, and for a fun weekend away with other society representatives from all over the country!
Venue and timings:
The venue is the Portland Building, University of Nottingham, NG7 2RD and the programme of events will run from 11 am until 5pm. The venue is within walking distance of Nottingham train station however there is also a £1 bus between the station and the centre of town.
As a correction to the information sent out in this week’s AHS newsletter, reasonable transport expenses in excess of £25 to and from Nottingham on the 6th December (public transport, off peak) can be refunded by the AHS through the travel grants scheme. In order to claim back your transport costs, before booking you should email Dan Newman, AHS Treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your expenses are eligible. You will then be required to retain your travel receipts and fill in the attached form. You can either submit your travel receipts and form electronically to Dan, or both along with you on the day of the event.
Unfortunately we are not able to offer free accommodation in Nottingham over the weekend, however there will be fun activities arranged for the Saturday evening and those who wish to stay over on the Saturday night are encouraged to book a room at Nottingham Central Hotel (Travelodge) where AHS and BHA representatives will be staying. Those wishing to stay on the Friday night can book at the same hotel, or enquire with AHS Secretary Martin Smith at email@example.com about the possibility of staying with members of UNASH.
