2022-23 SESN and NEON dates - book now for the first events!

We are pleased to publish the 2022-23 dates for our staff and officer networks (SESN and NEON), which will be a mix of in-person and online events.  The first meetings of both are taking place in person, followed by two online meetings of each network, finishing off the year with an in-person event, which will be a joint meeting of both networks and our Joint Advisory Group, following the success of last year's joint event. 

Following feedback from members, this year we are publishing provisional agendas for each meeting at the beginning of the academic year, to give members a broad idea in advance, of the topics that will be covered at each meeting. 

See below for all the dates and provisional agendas, please save the relevant ones in your calendar if you are a member of either network!
