  • 2020 Conference & AGM Update: Covid-19

    NatSCA2020 and Covid-19

    Due to the rapidly evolving situation relating to Covid-19, the NatSCA trustees have taken the decision to postpone our annual conference and AGM which was planned for 14th-15th May 2020.

    We hope to schedule an alternative date once the situation has become more stable and we will keep speakers and members informed of progress.

    This is not a decision that has been taken lightly, and we apologise to all those affected. We hope that our speakers will be available at a later date.
