ANNOUNCEMENT - 2020 UK Corpal Conference

Corpal Conference 2020 is unlikely to go ahead. Reason being we tried to find out how much support there would be for a weekend get together to include speakers. Sadly we did not get the feedback required to confidently commit Corpal funds raised mainly by some of our members hard work to set a date and venue.  So we have decided to try and re organise an event in 2021.

In the meantime, we will be holding regional events, mainly family get togethers to so members all over the Uk can get to know each other. We will announce various details in the next Newsletter due out early April. PLEASE CHECK THE LATEST NEWS FOR DATES OF EVENTS.

For those who responded to our plea of support for a 2020 Conference, Thank you and we really appreciate it and we hope not to disapooint you and still go ahead in a couple of years.

We would still be interested in hearing from ANYONE if you would like us to organise a weekend Conference, as Corpal still plans to go ahead at some point.

NEWSLETTER October 2018

Dear all,

It’s that time once again and there is a lot to tell you about! We have our usual family stories, which are always lovely to read about how our little ACCer’s are getting on.

We also have a report by our treasurer, Tom Deevy, who back in the summer attended the NODCC conference, our sister charity in America, to see how they organise and produce a twoyearly

conference for their members. In the future we are hoping to change our AGM’s event – you can read more about this over the next few pages! Exciting times!!!
