"Our AGM will be held on the evening before the Winter Scientific Meeting this year to facilitate attendance and discussion about Faculty affairs. This is an opportunity for Members and Fellows to learn about how the Faculty functions and to have your say on past or planned activities. The AGM will be followed by a CPD event: 'Journeys in advocacy - Are we there yet?' This will be a thought provoking and entertaining event for Trainees as well as Members and Fellows.
